Booooze Float Variations
I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, and especially turning the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!
Virgin Boo Float Mocktail (non-alcoholic)
So that non-drinkers can enjoy a this drink you simply leave out the wine! Just use more orange soda.
Booooze Float with…
White wine isn’t the only alcohol that would go well in a spike ice cream float, why not try one of these alternatives:
- Vodka – try a flavored vodka like vanilla
- Triple Sec – or other orange liqueur such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau
- Prosecco – or other sparkling wine
- Southern Comfort
Booooze Float Party Punch
Want to make this drink for a crowd? It’s so easy! Just double, triple, quadruple (or however much you need) the recipe and serve in a punch bowl!
Why not provide some fruity garnish to go with the punch? Skewer some orange slices and cherries onto Halloween cocktail picks and leave next to the glasses and punch bowl for guests to use.
This cocktail recipe is intended for adults of legal drinking age in your country of residence. Please drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive.
