#Choctoberfest: Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Float

I’ve had this recipe pinned for like….ever. No seriously, it’s from August of 2012 and I’m fairly certain I pinned it the day the post went live. Back then I at least had a good excuse for not making it, and that was because I couldn’t find cherry soda. Cherry Coke, yes. Cherry Pepsi, of course. But never just cherry soda.

I’m not even sure I knew that Cheerwine existed back then. I call it the Dark Days of Food Blogging before I started shopping at Wegman’s and shopping full-time on Amazon. Oh how things have changed! I’m fairly certain that any ingredient I could ever need for a recipe can be found at either of those two places. Anyway…

Chocolate, bourbon and cherry soda are definitely some of my favorite things in life, so it’s like this float was made just for me.

I kind of feel silly sharing this in a recipe format since it’s barely a recipe. It requires the ingredients, tall glasses and an ice cream scoop. Oh and a pretty printed paper straw so you can feel fancy drinking it.

DE-LICIOUS! If you’re a fan of bourbon, you’re gonna need one of these. And if you maybe drink both of them yourself because your husband is weird and doesn’t like cherry soda or bourbon, I’m not going to judge you or anything.
