There are things that I always seem to crave, like refreshing drinks and cold treats, so instead of sticking with infused waters I decided to take it to the next level and make a Watermelon Pineapple Float, and it’s just as good as it seems.
This is one of the first times I decide to make a float at home, I usually prefer to stick with more simple drink recipes, but oh how I regret it! Making a float at home is incredibly easy and the flavor and bubbliness and the overall float-making experience is great! I don’t know why I thought for so many years that it was difficult!
If you’ve never made a float before you need basically 2 things, soda and ice (affiliate link) cream. However, I’m not a big fan of soda so I used sparkling water and it worked out greaT! I also used dairy free ice (affiliate link) cream (any brand you love will work).
However, in my opinion, all the flavor explosion and deliciousness comes from the fresh ingredients, the watermelon juice and the pineapple chunks are what give this Watermelon Pineapple Float all the kick. It really tastes like a tropical vacation and using pineapple chunks gives you something to nibble on.
I made the watermelon juice at home and it’s also one of those incredibly easy things, just cut in chunks the watermelon add it to a blender with some water and pulse. Using fresh juice only takes a couple of minutes and makes all the difference so really friend go with the homemade watermelon juice route.
Besides that is just a matter or adding a couple of scoops of ice cream into a glass, adding some of the watermelon juice and topping it off with soda (this is where the bubbly magic happens) and then just garnish with the pineapple chunks and some watermelon slices.
