Cherry Cream Floats
Just like being in an old fashioned ice cream parlor!
|24 ounces||frozen pitted cherries|
|juice of 2 lime|
|1/2 pint||heavy cream|
|2 tablespoons||confectioners sugar|
|1 quart||vanilla or cherry-vanilla ice cream|
|maraschino cherry, for garnish|
In a blender, puree the cherries, sugar and lime juice; strain into a pitcher and add the seltzer. Using an electric mixer, whip together the cream and confectioners sugar until soft peaks form.
Scoop the ice cream into small glasses. Pour the homemade cherry soda over to fill, and top with a dollop of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
