Berry Good Purple Cow Ice Cream Float

Homemade Purple Cow Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #drink #recipe

This idea dawned on me when we were out at the folk music festival and the “root beer guy” was there, selling root beer, root beer floats, orange and grape soda and of course Purple Cow Ice Cream Floats! I’ve been making Italian cream sodas for years … don’t know why it never occurred to me to make a FLOAT with my berry syrup. I had to go home and try it.

It was just as good as I imagined at the festival. If you really want a grape flavor, I think you could use grape juice concentrate I (purple, of course) in place of the berry syrup. I really loved the berry taste, though, with the hint of roses. I couldn’t wait to start sipping on it, though, so yeah, you only get pics of the 2nd half. Sorry!

  1. Pour the club soda into a glass and add a shot of syrup. Stir and taste, and add a bit more syrup if it's not quite sweet enough.
  2. Add scoops of vanilla ice cream and a straw. Drizzle the top of the ice cream with a bit of extra purple syrup of you like and enjoy!
