Stars & Stripes (& sweets) Forever

Soda FloatsOn Election Day, I always try to incorporate some sort of fun celebration into the day. Since I was little, I can remember my mom laying out decorated cookies or other treats to munch on as we watched the results stream in. Even when my candidate of choice didn’t win, I always look back with fond memories of each election year.

Therefore, this year I decided to make a “patriotic” version of root-beer floats to sweeten up the evening with my friends as we watched the polls close.

Supplies Needed:

– 4 Mason Jars (found here)

– Decorative Straws (found here)

– Vanilla Ice Cream

– Blue Soda (I used Jones brand)

Start with a few scoops of ice cream into the mason jar.IMG_1560

Add the soda, filling halfway to let the fizz settle. IMG_1563

And enjoy!
