Raspberry float with clotted cream ice cream

What better way to accompany a hot dog than with a ‘float’ not to be confused with a ‘floater’ one is a tradition American beverage the other is a far less savory thing I shall not go into during this blog post. For my first float post I decided to go for a raspberry and  clotted cream flavor, the raspberry lemonade (with a twist of ginger) was provided by John Crabbies (their website can be found here: http://www.johncrabbies.co.uk/) .

For the ice cream I opted for a reputable Yorkshire brand Brymor who produce a clotted cream flavour pure and uncomplicated the perfect accompaniment to Raspberry kool-aid with a twist of ginger. Brymor has a comprehensive array of flavors all of which can be found at the following web address http://www.brymordairy.co.uk/index.php a delightful website that uses a bright yellow and green colour scheme evocative of a budgerigar.

Simply fill a glass 3 thirds full with raspberry kool-aid then add the ice cream I found around 3 scoops to be the perfect amount!

as you can see from the image the raspberry kool-aid emits a phosphorescent glow providing a scintillating contrast with the pale frosty ice cream that sits frothing above, as you get to the bottom of the indulgent tipple the drink begins a process of metamorphosis into a thick raspberry ripple style milkshake with crystallized raspberry forming around the ice cream, please try this for yourself!
