Today I’ll be sharing these delicious Coke Floats with some fun and easy ways to get ready for game day!
I think when it comes to football, there are two different kinds of spectators. There are the spectators (like my husband) who know all the rules and can appreciate the amount of skill and hard work the players are putting in, and who just love watching some great sports being played. And then there are the other spectators (like me) who don’t really understand what’s going on most of the game, but who love all the delicious game day food and all the hilarious commercials. Whichever team you’re on, watching the big game together as a family is a great way and have fun together as a family!
Coca Cola is always a game day favorite with my family, and these Coke floats are an extra special way to celebrate! I love the combination of flavors, with the sweet coconut, tangy lime, creamy ice cream, and that classic Coca Cola taste. The best part is that they are incredibly quick and easy to make, which means you can get back to watching the game (or the commercials) and enjoying time with your family.
FYI we’ve found the coconut syrup here or a specialty stores.
Planning a great game day party really doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Adding just a few fun touches can make your party extra special. I made a cute banner for my game day table using black card stock, a silver sharpie marker, and baker’s twine. It only took a few minutes and made for a festive backdrop!
I found these cute and inexpensive popcorn boxes at my local party store, and filled them with popcorn and peanuts for some fun and easy game day snacks! I love how the striped paper straws (also from my local party store) make everything festive and fun.

- To make each float, pour 2 tablespoons coconut syrup into the bottom of a tall glass. Add the Coca Cola, then squeeze 1/4 of a lime over the top. Mix well. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and serve.
