Valentine’s Day Drink Idea

I know Valentine’s Day is typically thought of to be a day of love for you and your sweetheart, but that doesn’t mean the kids can’t get in on the fun!

My kids and I made these cupid floats several years ago and they have become a Valentines Day tradition in our home. Just like the classic Root Beer Float, this drink is made with soda and ice cream and the result is a creamy, fizzy, FUN thirst quencher!

Cupid Floats are a perfect Valentine’s Day drink you can serve with your Valentine dinner, or you can make them as a special after-school treat for the kids. When I was the room mom for my daughter’s class last year, we made these floats at their Valentine’s Day party and all the kids LOVED drinking from the licorice straw.

Tip For Making Cupid Floats

  • To keep the foam to a minimum, I pour the cherry soda in the cup first and then add the ice cream.  If you pour the soda on top of the ice cream, then you get a lot more foam.
