Limoncello Ice Cream Floats

Why we don't see adult floats more often?  Bar menus often feature boozy shakes and frozen drinks, but floats are few and far between. I decided to make one myself: a limoncello float.

  • 1 ounce chilled limoncello You can purchase it or make homemade limoncello.
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
  • enough Champagne to fill the rest of the glass
  • As much vanilla bean ice cream as you'd like I used Häagen-Dazs® five ice cream


  • Pour limoncello and Grand Marnier into a tall glass.
  • Add as much champagne as you need to fill the rest of the glass.
  • Perch a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on the edge of the glass.
  • Enjoy


I used a tiny measuring cup from OXO to measure the alcohol in this recipe. It made it so easy! A friend left the measuring cup at my house and I haven't had a chance to return it. I figured that since it's already here, I may as well put it to use. :)
It's helpful to have some tall ice cream spoons to use for floats. This is not an item that most people own, but it's cheap and fun! Splurge!
