Grew up on this great float. This can be made sugar free too. Using sugar free ice cream and diet pop.


  1. pour ginger ale in very large glass.
  2. add 1 large scoop of ice cream.
  3. It will foam quite a bit. You may add more ginger ale or ice cream, to suit you taste.
  4. Enjoy!

This is a float I almost lived on when I was growing up! If we didn't have root beer or Coke in the fridge, ginger ale was the next soda of choice! Thanks for posting this classic, Chef 000 : )

These are the best! I'm not an ice cream lover but if there's vanilla (especially Stroh's) in the freezer this is what I'm going to have. And throwing this in the blender is another fantastic way to enjoy this. If you can get your hands on Vernors this is the only way to go.

These are the best arent they? I think they are an "up North" thing though. I was born in MI and we moved to Maryland when I was about 10. Nobody here seemed to know what these are. My Aunt used to mix hers in the blender mmmmmmmmmmm they were so good! :D
