Ginger-Mango-Lime Float

(recipe, Adam Ried)


I prefer ginger beer, which makes a stronger, spicier float than ginger ale.


  1. 1 Tbsp. agave nectar
  2. 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  3. Salt
  4. 1 cup cold ginger ale or ginger beer
  5. 1 large scoop (about ½ cup) ginger ice cream
  6. 1 large scoop (about ½ cup) mango sorbet


  1. Mix the agave, lime juice, and a few grains of salt well in a large (about 16 ounce) well-chilled glass. Add about ¾ cup ginger ale or beer and stir gently. Add the ice cream and remaining ginger ale or beer, and with a spoon push the ice cream down into the liquid once or twice. Top with the sorbet and serve immediately with a straw.
