Looking for a sweet way to cool off from the summer heat and get drunk at the same time? Why not try a deliciously naughty alcoholic float, in honor of Ice Cream Soda Day?

Serve these at your Fourth of July party, and your guests will never leave.

1. Boozy Buttered Rum Float

A simple yet delicious, caramelly spin on your classic rootbeer float. Not a rum person? Whiskey works great, too. Check out how to mix it up with some Jack Daniels here.

2. Kahlua Coke Ice Cream Float

Everyone loves a good Coke float!  If you aren’t drinking yours with Kahlua, you are missing out. Our favorite combo is Kahlua, chocolate ice cream and Vanilla Coke, but it’s all good!

3. Bottoms Up Brownie Sundae Irish Floats with Burnt Irish Caramel + Hot Fudge

We have no words for how awesome this super-decadent combo is – fortunately, it’s pretty self-explanatory!

4. Lime Sherbet Gin & Tonic Float

You can always buy your own lime sherbet, but this recipe is super delicious if you have a few extra minutes.

5. Irish Whisky Ice Cream with Salted Caramel

Salted caramel whisky ice cream is the ultimate pairing for a Guinness.

6. Boozy Cherry Vanilla Floats

You could probably also use alcoholic cherry cola if you want to strive for greatness.

7. Orange Dreamsicle Floatini

We love the orange cream flavors, but you could easily swap out orange soda for any other soda, like root beer (alcoholic or regular), cola or another fruit flavor.

8. Boozy Biscoff Beer Floats

Speculoos spread and chocolate porter (stout would work too) are truly a match made in heaven. So easy, too!

9. Pimm’s Cup Ice Cream Float

The slightly fruity gin-based liquor turns into the ultimate refreshment with ginger beer, vanilla, lemon and mint. If you don’t have or want Pimm’s, you substitute any fruity or infused gin that’s on the sweeter side – nothing too dry.

10. Manhattan Float

Turn your favorite cocktail into a refreshing ice cream float!

11. Red Wine Float

Yessss! Either use sparkling red wine or add a little seltzer to the regular stuff.

12. Raspberry Champagne Floats

You don’t have to use raspberry sorbet here – there are plenty of other flavors that would be awesome, like peach – but the combo is really, really good.
