Summer is here and so is the warm weather! We can’t wait to be outside more and drinking some of our favorite summer time drinks. Here is one of the best, the Brown Cow Coca Cola Float!
Once the weather starts getting warmer, I literally crave two things…water and a delicious, cold Coca Cola. For real, it’s the best. One of my favorite treats is a Brown Cow Coca Cola Float. It’s easy and so yummy. Brown Cow is the name from the soda fountain days. To create one, you just need a few key ingredients.
Vanilla Ice Cream
Whipped Cream (optional)
Maraschino Cherries (optional)
To start, if you have time, put your mug or tall glass in the freezer for an hour or more. Once you have your glass all nice and frosty, drizzle chocolate syrup around the glass. Next pour in your Coca Cola, then add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or two. Now you can stop there and enjoy, but I prefer to add a generous helping of whipped cream and top with a cherry and some more chocolate drizzle. If you want to get real fancy, add some chocolate sprinkles.
I personally try to keep my kids away from caffeine, because let’s be honest, the LAST thing my kids need is something to make them bounce off the walls even more than they already do! But you can easily turn this treat into a Black Cow, which keeps all the ingredients the same, except it swaps out Coca Cola for root beer. My kids love them and it’s a more fun twist on a classic root beer float. Are you a chocolate lover? I’ve heard some people add chocolate ice cream into the floats. I’m definitely going to give that a try! You can also use vanilla ice cream and orange soda for fruity orange floats.
So if you are a looking for something to cool you down as the temperatures start creeping up, definitely give this Brown Cow Float a try! You won’t be sorry! Enjoy!
