Shirley Temple Ice Cream Float

Shirley-Temple-Ice-Cream-Float

Here’s a spin on a root beer float that might bring back some childhood memories.

It’s made with Shirley Temple soda and of course it comes with a cherry on top.

When I was little the best thing about going out to dinner was having a Shirley Temple.

It was so great when the Shirley Temple would come with two cherries instead of just one.  I saved the second one until the very end.

I’m still a fan of Shirley Temples and I just love how pretty they are, not to mention that they taste so very good too.

This Shirley Temple float has the same delicious taste only with ice cream.  How great is that?

These colorful floats are festive and great to serve at a fun occasion for something different.

The Shirley Temple soda can be made ahead of time so all that has to be done when making these floats is to add the scoops of ice cream in serving glasses and then pour in the soda.

Super quick and easy for a delicious and nostalgic treat.
