You just gotta try a Godiva Mocha Liqueur Black Cherry Float!
Last weekend was a super fun weekend. We spent it visiting with my oldest son, Isaac, his wife and their 5 month old daughter. It’s always fun getting together with family and hanging out, playing games and eating great food. Isaac and Becky are always great about making sure we are all comfortable and having a good time.
Before traveling to see them, Isaac told me about a great drink recipe that he had created. It only calls for 3 ingredients and it’s a perfect adult drink for a hot summer day. While he gathered the ingredients to make this yummy concoction, I grabbed my camera and started snapping pics. Let me show you how he made delicious us Godiva Mocha Liqueur Black Cherry Floats.
This drink calls for Godiva Mocha Liqueur, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Black Cherry Cream Soda.
Isaac started by scooping some vanilla bean ice cream into one of his large glass beer mugs. Next, he alternated pouring the Godiva Mocha Liqueur and Black Cherry Cream Soda over the ice cream until the glass was totally full.
The combination of the vanilla ice cream, the chocolate liqueur and the cherry soda make for one pretty drink!!! Can you see the different colors in the picture? This Godiva Mocha Liqueur Black Cherry Float truly is as delicious as it looks.
To make this float a little more fancy, Isaac topped it off with some whipped cream and a cherry. (My Mom and Dad took Isaac and Becky some fresh organic cherries from their cherry trees). We had originally planned on using a fresh cherry with it’s stem still on for the picture but soon realized that we had pitted all of them. Thus we had to settle for a freshly pitted cherry instead. Of course it was every bit as delicious.
One of the nice things about this recipe is that you can easily control the chocolate liqueur/cherry soda ratio. Isaac used 4 large scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, a whole bottle (50 ml) of Godiva Mocha Liqueur, (*this liqueur is not gluten free), and a little over half a bottle (approximately 7 ounces) of Virgil’s Black Cherry Creme Soda, (labeled as gluten free), to make one 16 ounce float. You could also use Zevia All Natural Black Cherry Soda that has No Artificial Sweeteners; Sweetened with Stevia, Vegan, Kosher and Gluten-Free, Zero Calories; All Natural.
This is truly a beautiful and delicious drink! Make one large glass full and share it with your sweetie, or divide it into a couple glasses and have your very own! Either way, I think that you will agree it is an amazing creation!
Thanks Isaac for getting us hooked on Godiva Mocha Liqueur Black Cherry Floats!
