Ultra-indulgence and nostalgia together at last! Margarita Float takes a page out of root beer float’s book and adds a scoop of creamy, rich vanilla ice cream. This infusion of vanilla only emboldens the citrus bright flavors of the bubbly, bouncy margarita, making it the best of both worlds. Margarita Float is easy to make and only needs 5 minutes to pour, so you can immediately get summer going!
