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.

whiskey (I used Bulleit)

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.

  • Yumm!! Thank you for sharing! I’d love to try this and I know my husband would too! We’ll leave the dogs out of it though. 😉

  • Ice cream and cream soda in a cocktail? Sign me up! Love the peaches as a flavor addition.

  • This looks and sounds divine! I feel like I’ve had something similar and loved it, so I can’t wait to try this!

  • This Brit is always looking for perfect Texas food – these look like the holy grail! Bluebell icecream, fredericksburg peaches and Garrison bros whiskey = perfect!

  • This is definitely an ice cream float that I could get on board with! I have a couple of friends who really like whisky, and this would be a great recipe to share with them.

  • This sounds so good! I have only tried whiskey once, and I wasn’t fond of it, but I think I’d like it in something like this. Or vodka. I like vodka, especially in sweet drinks!

  • Such a great recipe! LOVE the combo! Such a fun, summer drink!

  • Looks amazing, guys! FYI, I thought it was funny that I actually had to Google “cream soda” when I saw this, because in Canada the only cream soda I’ve come across is pink. Like, seriously PINK pink, and I didn’t realize it wasn’t like this everywhere… Hah! Oh, Canada 🙂

  • Sorry- it’s not peeled. Just removed from core and blended. No peeling needed.

  • That sounds incredible! Have you had peaches from The Peach Truck?! They are THE best! And they deliver farm to porch!

  • I was going to make root beer floats for my husband and I to drink tonight on our deck, but this changes my plans a little bit 🙂 What a delicious, fun idea!

  • I adore the editing on these photos. Gorgeous! What action was used for these? Also, I really miss Blue Bell ice cream; we don’t get it here in the Mitten!

  • Hi Michelle! I normally don’t either, but this was seriously amazing. 🙂 -Jacki

  • I don’t normally drink whiskey but this will have to be an exception!! yuuuummm-my!

  • Danielle, I can’t drink either, and so Elsie made me a virgin version of this simply by omitting the whiskey and it was incredible! It tasted like liquid pie. 🙂 -Sarah

  • This looks so tempting…i am def trying this… love peaches, and ice cream…will try a non alcoholic version..

  • This sounds yummy! The peach purée recipe calls for peeled peaches but the peaches pictured look like they have the skin on. Can the drink be made either way?

  • This sounds incredible! My boyfriend is a big whiskey drinker, so he’d totally go for this. I wonder, peach infused whiskey also sounds really good…

  • This looks freaking delicious. I know what I’m having for breakfast/lunch/dinner/dessert for the next week. xx

    The What’s In Between

  • I made this with my Peach Bourbon Sweet Tea preserves from our local Palisade, CO peaches in place of the purée. Hello! Success story. Love your recipes and fancy craftiness.

  • This is so pretty! I don’t drink though, are there any substitutes for the whiskey?

  • Hey remember that time you made THE BEST DRINK OF ALL TIME!? I miss this day. You’re the best. xo – Sarah

  • I like x, I like y, I’ll like x+y is pretty much my cooking strategy as well.
    Spiced rum is my jam; I bet some Kraken would be great!

  • This is incredible. Sounds like a drinkable, boozy peach pie. I love cream soda floats. Can’t believe I never thought to make them a little more adult.
