We all know ice cream floats and how nostalgic they are, but have you ever had a cold brew coffee float?! This float is the adult version of the classic ice cream float you may have warm memories about, but with COFFEE!

Coffee and ice cream make up one of my favorite flavor combinations and one I will never get tired of. I’m all about coffee milkshakes, affogatos, and now cold brew coffee floats.

Also, try our boozy coffee milkshakes too! We even have cold brew peppermint popsicles too.

You can also try our cold press watermelon floats too. They’re made with watermelon juice and vanilla ice cream.

Coffee Float Ingredients

For these sweet treats you’ll need two ingredients:

Chocolate Ice Cream – You can use any flavor of ice cream that you like. We chose chocolate for this recipe.

Cold Brew Coffee – Make your own cold brew or buy premade which you can find at the grocery store.

Sparkling Water – We use a dash of water to add some bubbles to the float.

How to Make a Chocolate Rim

To make the chocolate rim, melt milk chocolate morsels and then dipped the rim of each glass into the melted chocolate.

Then place them in the freezer and let the chocolate harden and the glass got extra cold for the coffee floats.
