These coffee floats are the perfect grown-up take on a classic diner beverage. Created by food blogger Jessica Merchant of How Sweet It Is, the recipe for Cold Brew Coffee Soda Floats is a caffeinated version of a carbonated ice cream treat.

Using homemade ice cream creamer, the drink involves making your own cold brew coffee. For an extra energy boost, you can also add a few shots of espresso in there too. In addition to coarsely ground coffee beans, you will need ingredients including regular ice or coffee ice cubes, club soda and vanilla ice cream. You have the option of topping the coffee floats with toasted coconut and melted chocolate drizzle as well.

This float recipe shows how cold brew coffee can be used in a new format.
