There's no right or wrong way to enjoy an ice cream soda, but we do have a few tips for sprucing up your treat. To achieve the layers of ice cream scoops that soda floats are known for, use glasses that are tall and thin. Or, if you want to give your ice cream floats a rustic look, try serving them in tall Mason jars.
Garnishes can also make your ice cream soda look a little prettier (especially for a soda selfie!). Try adding berries to the top of your float, or using fruit slices, like pineapple or thin apple slices, to garnish the rim. You can never go wrong with a cherry on top! For chocolate-lovers, add chocolate curls on top, or finish with a drizzle of hot fudge or caramel sauce. You can even add a sugar cone or waffle cone on top to make an ice cream cone float! For a quick trip to the tropics, use fruity flavors and add a mini umbrella to your glass.
