The weekend has quickly approached and The Blind Pig Family is headed a many different directions, so this week’s post will be short and sweet and to the point. The other day as we were enjoying the sunshine and warmer weather, we were looking forward to all of those things that make spring and summer great — baseball, vacations, cookouts, and ice cream. It’s no secret on this blog that we have a strong affinity toward ice cream. What welcomes spring and summer and good times more than ice cream? How about a little ice cream with a twist?
Our Borghetti Coke Float is exactly the right special treat to take you back to simpler times, while putting a little adult spin on it. This easy, tasty treat is so easy to make you’ll be sipping on it on your front porch swing in no time flat.
The star ingredient in the Borghetti Coke Float is Cafe Borghetti. Cafe Borghetti is an espresso liqueur made with real espresso beans. It has a low alcohol content of 25%, so it is perfect for a little sweet treat in the middle of the day. The Cafe Borghetti gives the float a twist of coffee flavor which pairs well with the ice cream and Coke. So delicious! We first shared Cafe Borghetti with you in our Save Room for Pie post. (This is still Craig’s favorite dessert!)
To make a Borghetti Coke Float, you need only three ingredients: Cafe Borghetti liqueur, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a bottle of Coca-Cola. We used Blue Bell Vanilla Bean ice cream, and Coke Zero for ours.
So what do you think? Are you going to spend some time swinging in your hammock this week sipping on a Borghetti Coke Float?
