The Cherry Blossom Float by McDonald's was a more sophisticated diversion for the brand, and it was only available for a short amount of time.
The beverage, which was offered through the month of April, was titled the Cherry Blossom Float, or the Sakura McFloat (which translates to cherry blossom). It was carbonated and made up of cherry juice, and could have been topped with soft-serve ice cream or left to be consumed on its own. The beverage was highly aesthetically pleasing, with a gradient white to dark pink color and a plastic cup that featured small floral patterns on it.
The social media-friendly Cherry Blossom Float functioned as the ideal limited edition drink – both full of flavor and visually appealing.
