Fourth of July Drinks: Firecracker Float

Well here we are almost to the end of our Fourth of July Menu…the drinks! This Firecracker Float will really make a “POP” with the kiddos and adults too! But first, let me remind you of the other Fourth of July Recipes we have shared…Main Dishes and the All-American BurgerSalads with Seven Layer Salad in a jar, Sides and this easy 3 ingredient Patriotic Dip, Fruit Recipes and a Fruit Parfait with Creamy Lime Dressing and Cool Treats with Apple Pie Pops!

With only 3 ingredients the Firecracker Float goes together in a snap…Vanilla Ice Cream, POP Rocks Candy and Lemon-Lime Soda…and simply layer it in a glass and serve immediately.
