Fun drinks are a must on holidays. While I am all in on fun cocktails, the kids want fun drinks too. When I pulled out the Cherry 7-Up and ice cream for these cherry floats, the kids couldn't wait to each have their own cherry float. The cherry floats are great for Valentine's Day, baby showers, baby reveal parties and princess parties.
To make these cherry floats begin by filling glasses with scoops of ice cream. I put about 4 scoops of ice cream with my hand warming ice cream scoop into pint mason jars. Then begin to fill with the Cherry 7-Up.
It will fizz up quickly when you start pouring the cherry 7-Up onto the ice cream. A talented person would fill the glass with the cherry 7-Up and then add the ice cream. I am not that talented person when making Cherry 7-Up ice cream floats.When the glass is filled to the just below the rim, add the whipped cream. I am a big fan of the redi-whip style whipped cream. It isn't abnormal for us to have two or three cans in the fridge at any given time. Whipped cream is the perfect way to top of these cherry floats.
