After gently pouring a nice tall glass 1/2 of the way with your choice of soda you ever so tenderly plop a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream into you glass so that the ice cream floats.
You generously ladle vanilla ice cream into your wide mouth jar and gingerly trickle the soda over the ice cream. Being careful to not get to much fizz because that would hinder the amount of soda that goes in.
It really does not matter to you. You do not see the science in it at all, you just want the float already!
Everyone falls into one of these categories if you make floats. And there is a science to it. We love floats at our house. They are somewhat quick and easy depending on how slow you trickle. They are affordable. They are great for company dinner and sleepovers. They combine the best of two worlds. Soda and ice cream and the possibilities are endless...
