RC Cola Reinvent Traditional Ice Cream Float With A Festive Twist (with or without alcohol !)

Ice cream floats bring back happy memories of being at my grandparents' house (and looking at my grandad thinking, are you really allowed to put ice cream in fizzy drink ?!!) so I scuttled off to check out the recipe and was very chuffed to see there's a grown-up version too, which sounds perfect for Christmas !

************************************************************************



With Christmas fast approaching, RC® Cola has teamed up with mixology expert Alastair Tatton to craft a celebratory cocktail to toast the festive season.

Inspired by RC® Cola’s American roots, the ‘Really Christmassy Cocktail’ is a festive take on the iconic ice cream float which has tempted tastebuds across the pond since 1874.


Sundeep Gill, assistant brand manager for Cott Beverages Ltd. who launched RC® Cola in the UK, said, “Just like the ice cream float, RC® Cola has been at the heart of America for over a century. With an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version, this spiced-up version of an old-fashioned treat is perfect for anyone wanting to indulge themselves this Christmas. The kids could even leave one out for Santa!”
