Hola! I’m back today to share our pineapple-orange ice cream float – the latest in our Frozen Flavor series for ice cream drinks. Now, I’m calling this an ice cream float, but this one is made with sherbet.
If you’ve ever done much observing about ice cream floats, you will see there are two camps. In one camp are those who believe the ice cream goes into the glass first. In the other are the folks who believe the soda goes in first to eliminate excess foam. I am a staunch member of the first camp. I want all the frothy goodness I can get out of a float!
Pineapple-Orange Ice Cream Float – Frozen Flavor Feature
I remember as a kid drinking those little canned juices that my parents often bought for camping trips. One kind was just plain orange juice and the other was a tangy and delightful pineapple-orange juice. I was a fan from day one. For this float, I decided to veer from the typical brands of sodas I normally buy for floats. I went with Jarritos Pineapple soda. Jarritos is a wildly popular brand out of Mexico that I’ve never tried. However, being a Spanish and English as a Second Language teacher, I’ve always been intrigued. It definitely offers a burst of intense flavor. Supposedly Jarritos have more carbonation that the average soft drink and is made from 100% pure sugar. I figured this made it an excellent drink for my pineapple-orange ice cream float.
Making floats doesn’t get any easier: a couple of scoops of ice cream or sherbet and flavored soda.
Join us next time for another ice cream drink concoction in our Frozen Flavor Feature series. What kind of ice cream drink person are you: floats, shakes, malts?
- 2 scoops of orange sherbet
- 1/2 bottle of Jarritos Pineapple soda
- Pineapples or oranges for garnish, optional
- Add the sherbet to a chilled glass.
- Slowly pour the pineapple soda over the sherbet until the foam reaches the edge or slowly rises above.
