Ice Float-

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

Ice Float is a chilled beverage that consists fruit juice, ice cream and carbonated water.

In Australia and New Zealand, an ice float is known as a "spider" because once the carbonation hits the ice cream it forms a spider web like reaction. In the UK and Ireland, it is usually referred to as an "ice-cream float" or simply a "float"

Some time we confuse between soda and float. In soda we blend syrup and cream together and Add the soda water but in the ice float, ice cream "floats" on the top of soda water.

In India popular ice floats are coke float, orange float which are served with coke and fanta, but this time we are serving ice floats with healthy fresh fruit juices.
