Candy Cane Vodka Float with Village Ice Cream

candycanefloat1

I know the question you are all wondering as you sit at home with various remnants from your holidays scattered throughout your kitchen – what am I supposed to do with all of this candy cane ice cream now that Christmas is over?! No matter where you picked up your Candy Cane Ice Cream (ours came from the beloved Village Ice Cream!) you can make it even more delightful as you transition from full on holiday-mode back to your regular scheduled cocktail sipping programming.

what ya gotta put down:

Village Ice Cream Candy Cane Ice Cream

Vodka (we used Smirnoff)

Peppermint Schnapps

Crushed Candy Cane Sprinkles

Club Soda

mix it up:

Start off by pouring a shot of vodka into your class. Swirl it up a bit with half a shot of the peppermint schnapps. Fill your glass halfway with soda. Here comes the absolutely delicious part! Scoop up your Candy Cane Ice Cream into perfect round scoops and drop into your glass. Top up with more soda until the ice cream floats to the edge of the glass. Sprinkle with crushed candy cane and drop a candy cane striped straw in. Slurp up and enjoy this seasonally delightful treat well into the New Year. Though it depends on how long you can make your ice cream last!

It was an absolute pleasure to hang out at Village Ice Cream with Billy again and create this yummy ice cream float! It’s a beautiful space to grab a handmade waffle cone and your favourite flavour. Plus, Billy and his team are always coming up with tasty new flavours so check in often.
