Share a Coke Float

Things have FINALLY started to heat up around here and I could not be happier.  Spring and summer always fly by, so I'm really trying to soak in all of these nice days.  We are so excited for our baby boy to be here in the fall, but know that we should try and enjoy the times we have just the two of us before his arrival.  After the awful winter we had, relaxing out on the deck each night has been such a treat for us.  And there's nothing better on a warm Spring night than an ice cold beverage.
With a baby on the way, Happy Hour has taken on a whole new meaning at our house - but that doesn't mean it has to be boring!   
Earlier this week on a particularly warm night, I swung into Walgreens on my way home and grabbed the fixings for Coke Floats.  Walgreens has a #CokeHappyHour promotion running where every Wednesday-Friday from 4-7PM if you buy one Coke you can get one free to share (click here for the coupon).  I hadn't had a Coke float in YEARS but it was just as delicious as I remember.  I set up a little make your own float station outside for the hubs and I to enjoy.  Such a great treat! 
Because I like things to look as yummy as they taste, I served our Coke Floats in mason jars tied with twine and fun paper straws.   These would also be a fun and easy bevy for any summer BBQ.  You can scoop the ice cream into the mason jars ahead of time and just store them in freezer until party time.
Once guests start to arrive, just pull the jars out of the freezer and stick them in a bucket of ice alongside your Coca-Cola.  This way you can spend more time enjoying your guests and less time scooping ice cream.  The ingredients may be simple, but the end result is anything but boring!
Looking to have a Coke Float bar of your own?   Head on over to Walgreens where every Wednesday through Friday from 4:00 to 7:00pm, Buy 1 Coca-Cola 20 oz. bottle and Get 1 Free 20 oz. bottle to share! You can load the coupon instantly on the Walgreens app or click here for more information.  If that isn't incentive enough, May through July you get 3,000 Balance Rewards points when you purchase $10 of participating Coca-Cola products.
Who are you going to share a Coke Float with this summer?
