HOW TO MAKE SHARK BAIT ICE CREAM FLOATS
Begin by filling your glass half full with your favorite blue drink. Kool-Aid, Hawaiian Punch, and Blue Gatorade are all good choices!
I like to use our small Mason Jars for this drink – they look adorable!
Next, fill your glass almost to the top (leave some room for your ice cream scoop) with a sparkling beverage – we like 7UP or Sprite! (I also have an AMAZING 7UP Cake Recipe that would go perfectly with this float!)
Then, add a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream right on top!
That’s it! Your Shark Bait Ice Cream Float is complete! Hand over to your favorite smiling faces and enjoy!
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
- Keep this ice cream float as cold as you can for as long as possible so it doesn’t all melt away!
