Growing up in Newfoundland, Dr Pepper was a real treat. I always loved the one of a kind flavor and bubbly feel whenever we enjoyed it. Some of my favorite memories are of movie night with my dad — we would munch on popcorn and make ice cream floats with Dr Pepper to sip on while we watched.
Last Friday, I was all set for a delicious backyard BBQ. I went to Walmart earlier in the week to pick up everything we would need, including a 12 pack of Dr Pepper cans. However, by late Friday afternoon, I realized things were not going to go as planned since storms were rolling in. Even though I’m loving grilling season and I was looking forward to more time outside, we decided to make the best of it and move the party inside!
Once we were inside, Mike suggested we watch a movie and it instantly made me think of my Friday night movie time with dad, complete with Dr Pepper ice cream floats. They’re so simple to make and oh-so-good. Perfect for a movie night in or for a backyard bash!
Dr Pepper ice cream floats are so simple to make — which makes them perfect for outdoor parties since you can do several of them quickly and get back to time with your guests.
- Select an awesome glass or mug.
- Pour in the Dr Pepper, filling about 3/4 of the way.
- Put in a scoop of vanilla ice cream — try other flavors of ice cream for more fun flavor combos!
- Pick a fun straw… I’m loving the red polka dots.
- You could also garnish with some sprinkles or a dash of chocolate syrup as well.
Enjoying these ice cream floats was like a flash back to being home with my dad. Such sweet memories to enjoy while enjoying a sweet drink!
