This Ginger Praline Coffee Float, with its layers of praline ice cream, ginger snaps, and coffee, is a cold adult coffee treat of the very best kind. It has the smoothness of coffee along with caramelly sweet pralines, and the zing of ginger.

This is a treat that’s as great for sipping poolside as it is for serving after your next dinner party. This smooth, cool treat was inspired by the classic Italian affogato which is a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso. Some variations also include a shot of amaretto or other liqueur.

On the day when I was creating this recipe, it was about 98 degrees. Ice cream was the only thing I wanted. Then suddenly affogato popped in my head and I started to think of a way to spin that recipe into something unique.

One of my favorite ice creams is a praline and cream flavor and ginger snaps are always a staple in my pantry, and that’s how this coffee float came to be. It’s as perfect for summer as my Mocha Eggnog Sundae is for the holiday season.

I like to serve this in a tall soda glass with a long dessert or iced tea spoon. It’s also lovely in a shallow dessert dish.
