These Cherry Vanilla Coke Floats will make the sweetest dessert this Valentines day. Homemade cherry vanilla syrup, vanilla ice cream and coke.
In a small saucepan, combine cherries, sugar and water. Bring to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring and mashing every few minutes. Place a strainer over a clean bowl and strain syrup. Press cherries to get all the juice and flavor from them. Store syrup in refrigerator, preferably in a bottle for ease of pouring.
To assemble the floats: add 1 1/2 tablespoons of syrup into the bottom of each glass. Pour a can of coke into each glass. Carefully add two scoops of vanilla ice cream to each glass. Stir gently with a straw and enjoy.
