Minty-coco-cola-float

Summer has finally arrived in California with a BANG and the temperature has crossed 100 F mark !!!

Gosh it’s HOT and all I can think of areCool, Refreshing – Summer Drinks from spritzers, juices, smoothies and my all time favorite Ice-cream floats, so we made these fancy looking Minty Coca-Cola FloatMinty Coke Float (Super Quick & Easy with 3 Ingredients)

Ever since a young age, these Ice-Cream floats have been my favorite, I still remember when mom made them for the first time, it blew my mind and I immediately fell in love with it ….read ‘what’s not there to love‘.

When the fizz from the Coca-Cola meets a chilled ice-cream, it created this magical frothy dessert drink that became a frequent feature at our weekend brunch parties. 

So, I decided to give a twist to the classic recipe with the addition of fresh mint (you can use essence if fresh is not available), Coca-Cola Zero™ and they were a Super Duper Hit …. even D loved it (who’s not big on dessert drinks)

After coming back on Monday evening from an exhaustive but fun Memorial Day Weekend Trip, we stopped over at Safeway (which is so close to our house and great value for money products) for grocery.

I came across these Coca-Cola Zero™ bottles with song lyrics on them ….. OMG, they all have different lyrics and for a minute, I was excited like a kid picking up each bottle, trying to find my favorite one.

We made this Minty Coca-Cola Float and enjoyed rest of the evening chilling with our favorite music. We are huge Music Buffs with endless playlists and always have music playing in the house (all genre and lots of International Music too).

Infact, I cannot cook without music….I NEED music when cooking and always count it as the first ingredient in my recipes.

All these recipes that have been posted on the blog or that I ever made, had a background music to it and off-course spicy food always features with a Bollywood Song !!!

As soon as we finished our Minty Coca-Cola Float, I clicked a Selfie with my ‘Share A Coke And A Song’ bottle and entered the sweepstake – I hope you do it too ~ All the Best!

The recipe is absolutely easy peasy and fun to make with kids, as they would love all that frothy bubbles effect that happens when you mix coke with ice-cream.

    Mint and Coca-Cola... two flavors I never thought should be together. Seems you made it work! I'd have to use full-sugared Coke, my husband hates the "diet" stuff... but he'd be down for ice cream in cola for sure!

    I'm currently sipping a Coke Zero right now and wishing it was one of these floats! These look awesome and refreshing. We're headed on a family vacation to the beach in a few days and I'm thinking this would be a great thing to whip up while there!
