Peaches & Whiskey Ice Cream Float

Peaches and Whiskey Ice Cream FloatOne of my favorite ways to create a recipe is to mix things I love that wouldn't normally go together. This cocktail is a love child of such mixing. I like whiskey… I like peaches… I like cream soda… and I LOVE ice cream. It might sound like a bit of an odd mix, but wait till you try it. It's absolutely amazing.

Peaches and Whiskey Ice Cream Float  *To make your peach purée, just blend up one peach (core removed) in a blender (use a tiny bit of water if you need liquid to help it blend). This makes enough purée for several drinks! 

In a mug, combine two tablespoons peach purée, 1 1/2 ounces whiskey, and fill close to the top with cream soda, leaving room for one scoop ice cream. Mix the ingredients with a spoon. Add one scoop vanilla ice cream and sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon. Enjoy! 

This is a dessert and drink in one. It's perfect for a party and easy to prep in advance for a group. I hope you guys like it as much as I do! If you have a whiskey aversion (as some of the girls on my team do), replace it with the spirit of your choice. I would probably choose vodka as my second choice. 

Peaches and Whiskey Ice Cream Float   If you're curious how this drink would taste as a mocktail, we tried that too! Just omit the alcohol and enjoy! It's delicious and unique, like an extra fancy soda float.
