Summery Ice Cream Cocktail (the adult ice cream float!)

ice cream cocktail

Why should the summertime ice cream floats be reserved for the kids? When Campari sent us this recipe we said, “Yes! We deserve something creamy, refreshing and most definitely adult.”The recipe for this ultra-enticing ice cream cocktail was created by Pamela Wiznitzer of New York’s super-cool bar Seamstress. We love the sophisticated layers of flavor topped off with a great big scoop of that childhood favorite, vanilla bean ice cream. This is summertime genius!
