Where to buy rose ice cream?
I will be honest. It’s a little hard to find at stores but I have seen it at some Indian grocery stores. You can also order online but it can be a little expensive.
Here are some TIPS for making PERFECT rose ice cream float:
- Use the best quality vanilla ice cream you can find. The cheap one dissolves really fast with the soda and becomes watery in just a few minutes.
- Use the best quality rose syrup you can find. It will have the strongest flavor and best aroma.
- Rose syrup can be bought online from Amazon or it can also be found in the drinks/juice/soda aisle in some grocery stores.
- You can also use rose ice cream instead of the vanilla one that I used in this recipe. However, it is a little hard to find.
- If you want to make boozy or alcoholic rose ice cream floats, use champagne instead of Sprite.
- This float tastes best when served immediately. I do not recommend making these floats in advance.
