Drinking a coke float is one of my favourite memories of being at my Grandmother’s. In the 1920’s my Grandmother worked at an old fashioned soda fountain. She loved it. She talked all the time about the fashion of the 20’s, the fun, the flappers, and her favourite floats. When I was about 8 my Grandmother came home with this beautiful tall Coca Cola glass that was just for me. She placed it high in her cupboards so that only the two of us knew where it was. On special visits we would bring down the glass and make a Coke Float together then play Crokinole until our fingers were sore. Coke Floats are special to me, a piece of my childhood. From that yummy foam on the top to the creaminess of the drink, it brings back wonderful memories. While the recipe is simple, the taste and experience most definitely are not!
- 1 can or bottle of Coca Cola
- 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- Whipped Cream

- Scoop 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass.
