European Soda Floats for Dessert

It's movie night at the house tonight. I've got some teen girls who have never seen "The Devil Wears Prada" (gasp!) coming over and I have to serve a super chic dessert. Since the movie is all about getting to Paris fashion week by surviving Miranda Priestly, I thought some European soda floats would be perfect!

They are beyond easy to make and so good! All you need is some French vanilla ice cream, some Italian soda (I buy mine at Trader Joe's) and a garnish depending on the flavor of the soda. Tonight I am making lemon.

Just scoop some ice cream into a glass and fill with the soda. Garnish with the fruit of your choice to compliment the soda flavor.


This creates a creamy, fizzy drink that is perfect for summer relaxing. And it is incredibly chic....
