It was love at first sight. Well it was "I KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO WITH YOU" at first sight. The minute I saw that Dry Sparkling had an apple soda, without hesitation I thought- Apple Pie Ice Cream Float! By now you all should know that I love ice cream floats. So I would highly suggest that you get used to the occasional float creation making its way to the blog.
After snagging a few (and I really mean a few cases) of my craft soda, the search for the perfect ice cream began. I pretty much knew that I would be looking for a flavor by Steve's Ice Cream since the quality is beyond exceptional. I eventually settled on the Burnt Sugar Vanilla pint (one of many great options to choose from).
Now how do I make an ordinary ice cream float extraordinary? Hmmm....how about baking an apple and adding that to it? Why NOT?! Best experiment ever!
- Apple Soda - Dry Sparkling
- Burnt Sugar Vanilla Ice Cream - Steve's Ice Cream
- Sliced Baked Apple (Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, Butter, Raisins-optional)
Flavors to Try: Ice Cream: Vanilla, Vanilla Bourbon, Salted Caramel
- I love how easy Wiki How went over the steps, so I figured it would be silly to reinvent the wheel. Click How to Make a Baked Apple if you need help. The raisins are optional for this recipe since this is going into a float.
- Once apple has cooled, remove skin and slice
- Mix apple slices into ice cream
- Pour cold apple soda into glass
- Add ice cream and apple slice mixture to soda
