There is nothing better than sitting around the living room with the kids, a cup of eggnog in your hand, a tray of cookies on the table, and a blanket keeping your legs warm, while you share and participate in some of your favorite holiday traditions.
It’s a definite sign that Christmas is around the corner once you start seeing eggnog popping up in the fridges at the grocery store, and I just can’t help myself but load up on every variety they offer.
This year, I was so excited to grab Kemp’s Buttered Rum Eggnog for me and Golden Eggnog for the kids – it’s so nice to have the variety to keep everyone happy and for me to be able to enjoy that delicious buttered rum flavor without worrying about adding alcohol into the mix.
As a fun twist, I also grabbed Kemp’s Vanilla Ice Cream and a bottle of club soda to make a special treat for the kids and I – Eggnog Floats!
These eggnog floats are creamy, delicious and slightly unexpected. The fizziness from the club soda helps make that delicious ice cream foam we have all come to expect on the top of a soda float, while not significantly altering that perfect texture and taste of the eggnog.
I used the Buttered Rum Eggnog for my float and the Golden Eggnog for the kids, but I would have been just as happy with the Golden Eggnog.
How to Make Eggnog Floats
You will need:
- 1 cup eggnog
- 1/2 cup club soda
- 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
- Whipped cream, optional garnish
- Red & green sprinkles, optional garnish
To make these eggnog floats, simply fill your glass halfway with the eggnog.
Place the vanilla ice cream overtop of the eggnog and then carefully fill the glass with the club soda.
Swirl on some whipped cream and scatter on some sprinkles, if desired, before adding a cute straw and serving immediately.
