Drinking Rum and Coca-Cola

Any of you heard the Andrews Sisters song: Drinking Rum and Coca-Cola? We heard it from our parents growing up. Imagine our surprise when we saw an old recipe for an adult version of a "Coke Float". That would be a Rum and Coca-Cola Float! It's delicious and great in the summer! Even more so if you play their song while you sip it with a big straw!

Place 2 scoops of the rum flavored ice cream in a frosted/cold glass. (You can use vanilla ice cream or cherry ice cream if you can't find the rum flavored).

SLOWLY pour the Coca Cola over the ice cream. You can use Diet Coke too! It will fizz and foam and may overflow from the glass. That's where you come in! Slurp it ladies before it runs down the glass!

Now add a splash of Rum and insert your straw!

This may be the best thing ever. But where exactly do you go to buy rum flavored ice cream? Does it exist? And if so, why I'm I just now finding out about it??!
