I'm dedicating this week to all things Valentines! Whether you celebrate with your special someone or cozied up on the couch with a glass of red and your favorite movie, I'm sure there will be a recipe or that you can enjoy!
While most people consider Valentines day a celebration strictly between you and your sweetheart, that doesn't mean kids can't join in the fun. Since Tucker has come into the picture, Valentines is a day we all celebrate together. Tucker gets a card, a few presents and ALWAYS joins us in the kitchen to cook our special celebratory meal.
This cupid float is so easy to make and would make a great addition to your special meal, dessert afterwards or even as a quick afternoon snack. Instead of traditional soda, I used a cherry ginger beer. Before you keep scrolling because you think this isn't kid friendly, let me tell you, the ginger beer is alcohol free. It gets it's name because it's made more like a beer to help yield a more crispy, ginger flavor.
This is a delicious float like no other. So go ahead and grab some ginger beer, ice cream and cherries and make this fun float for you and your special someone(s).
