The long, sweet love affair between carbonation and ice cream began bubbling in the late nineteenth century—long before sock hops, and even prior to Coca-Cola’s creation. Robert M. Green started the summer soda float sensation in 1876 when he served ice cream rather than ice with his signature flavored soda waters during a blistering hot festival. People lined up in droves for the frothy floats, and not long after, other soda fountain owners began shelling out their own creative takes.

Over 130 years later, we still love them, and judging by the multitude of beautiful concoctions floating (pun intended) around the web, we’d say we’re not alone. Try our grown-up Rum and Coke Float Recipe featured in the video above, and then check out the pretty and delicious floats we’ve been eying from bloggers below.
