Cherry Ice Cream Float

Add some cherry syrup to your ice cream float for a grown-up twist on the classic treat

“Ice Cream floats are insanely delicious to begin with – but when you add a heavy drizzle of Luxardo syrup, they become nothing less than pure bliss. I love this recipe because it replaces any artificial sweeteners or flavorings, and is incredibly simple to make. I also appreciate that it uses the leftover syrup of the cocktail cherries themselves, which is a shame to waste,” says Emily Wells of Gastronomista.
