Coke Float Cocktail

A creamy, bubbly vodka cocktail with all the flavors of a Coke float.

Total Time: 5 minutes


Remember Coke Floats? Throw a couple of scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream into a tall glass, pour Coca-Cola over the top, delight at the foamy concoction that emerges, and then go at it simultaneously with a spoon and a straw?

Floats are pretty much one of the best inventions ever. Yet somehow I always manage to let years pass in between enjoying them. Maybe not now, however. This Coke Float Cocktail isn’t actually a float, per se (it doesn’t have ice cream, and it does have vodka) but it certainly boasts all the flavors you remember.

Vanilla, cream, Coke, and whipped cream vodka. Served over ice. Slurped immediately.

The coolest thing about this drink, other than the fact that it’s delicious, of course, is that the Coke and the whipping cream, when combined, foam up just like the real thing.

Coke Float Cocktail

A creamy, bubbly vodka cocktail with all the flavors of a Coke float.

Yield: 1 drink

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 1/2 ounces whipped cream vodka
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • Ice


  1. Fill a tall glass with ice. Pour in the heavy whipping cream, vodka, and vanilla extract. Stir. Carefully pour in Coca-Cola (mixture will foam up a bit).
  2. Stir and serve with a straw.

Be sure to give this drink a stir occasionally while drinking it, as it can separate a bit. I think that adds to the floaty-ness, but it might not be your thing, so you've been warned. (Another warning: these are VERY easy to drink!)

    Holy Moses, this looks amazing. I think I’m grateful that I don’t have any of these ingredients in my house currently, because otherwise I’d be on the floor. I can’t wait to give these a try some day, though!

    LOVE your site, by the way– what a great concept! I’m also in a relationship with a carnivore, and it’s endless fun/challenging to come up with satisfying meals for the two of us to enjoy together.

      Hee hee Sara – yes, these can be dangerous.

      I love your attitude about living in a mixed-diet home. Opportunities for creativity are a good/fun thing, right? :)
