I scream, you scream, we all scream for Cream alcohol-infused whipped cream. With warmer days on the way, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with cocktails inspired by summertime classics. Flavors of the whipped cream include chocolate, caramel, vanilla, cherry and raspberry, and they can be found at Sigel’s for $11.99 a can.

Cherry cola float

Don’t even think about the calories in this decadent delight. It’s worth every extra mile on the treadmill.

Cherry Cream

Pour grenadine into two large glasses; add cola and stir gently. Add scoop of vanilla ice cream to each and top with Cream and a maraschino cherry.


Mix tip: Add an ounce of 360 Cola flavored vodka for an extra kick.
