Light and frothy, sweet and creamy — what’s not to love about the classic Coke float? I usually associate these simple treats with being a kid and lazing in the garden on hot summer afternoons. The combination of a fizzy cold drink and plain cold ice-cream is the kind of irresistible refreshment that has always gone down well.
Although summer is still quite a bit away, and even though it consistently rained on and off today; I had Coke floats on my mind all weekend. I finally gave in this evening and delighted in pouring a dash of Coke over a few scoops of good quality vanilla ice-cream. From the delicate foam that instantly appears at the top of the glass to the velvety liquid that forms at the bottom; I savoured every mouthful and it was as simply perfect as I expected.
