Summer Treat: Fruity Floats
In my never-ending search for a sweet, refreshing summer time treat, I have been getting creative in the kitchen (which is one of my favorite things to do). After some experimentation, I am sipping on a my new favorite summer indulgence: Fruity Floats.
Gather up your supplies including your favorite sherbert (I used lime), fruit-flavored sparkling water (tropical over here), ice, a cup and a straw.
Fill up your cup with ice and add a few scoops of sherbert. If your sparkling water is chilled, you can probably skip the ice. I always add it because I enjoy the sherbet covered cubes at the end.
Finish off by pouring some of the sparkling water over the ice and sherbet. Garnish with a straw and enjoy. Not only is it refreshing and tasty, but the colors just scream out fun.
Now, I want some fun, colored cups and fun paper straws to dress these up a little. Grab the kids and have some fun creating your own. Let me know if you come up with any excellent flavor combinations.
