My kids really enjoyed sipping these while completing their Polar Express activities. All you need for this sweet treat is 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream and 1/2 cup ginger ale. My kids lightly sprinkled red and green sugar crystals on top and then added a candy cane. The candy cane will dissolve in the shake rather quickly giving it some extra flavoring. One of my sons used a peppermint candy cane but my other son wanted the cherry flavored candy cane. These floats were a big hit!
