A childhood favorite makes a comeback with this adult Shirley Temple float, spiked with vodka and amaretto ice cream.
1 c. vanilla ice cream, softened
1 oz. amaretto liqueur
16 oz. lemon-lime soda, chilled
2 oz. marachino cherry juice
3 oz. vodka
marachino cherries, for garnish
1. Mix the softened ice cream and amaretto liqueur in a small bowl until combined. Place in the freezer until the ice cream has firmed up again and is “scoopable”.
2. Combine the soda, cherry juice and vodka, divide evenly between 2 glasses. Top with scoops of the amaretto-spiked ice cream.
