Cupid Floats

Hello Lovely,

Is it okay to admit that I’ve never had a root beer float? I’m sorry! Don’t kill me! I was never big on soda so I just never had it. But when I saw this recipe from MomsNeedToKnow, I just had to try it! If you are looking for a sweet treat for your Valentine (or even to just surprise your children), then you might want to try these Valentine's Day Cupid Floats!

These look so cute when you use mini milk bottles.  But since I assume that most people don't have mini milk bottles, this is a great way to reuse Starbucks Frappuccino bottles! Just wash them out well (they can easily go in the dishwasher) and you can reuse them over and over for a different kind of drinking glass!  You can find all sorts of fun straws at your local AC Moore, Michael's, etc!

These were made with Strawberry Soda (which you can usually only find in the “store brands”), but you can also use any red soda if your children don't like strawberry.  There's Code Red (Mountain Dew), Cherry 7 UP and probably even more (I can't think of any – can you?)
