Whisky Apple Pie Float

This Whisky Apple Pie Float is the ultimate dessert cocktail! Just like a root beer float, except we’re using apple cider and whisky!


Whisky has become one of my favorite things to drink. Especially when we’re talking about Crown Royal Apple. I can say without hesitation that this is one of my favorite things to sit down and have a glass of.

And it turns out to be my favorite drinkable dessert too. Just add ice cream and cider and you’ve got yourself a boozy, dessert cocktail!

I definitely seem to be on a dessert cocktail kick these days, I like making drinks like that for the people who think that they don’t like whatever liquor I’m putting in there.

Then when they love it I’ll go ahead and tell them the ingredients.

Sneaky way of doing things, I know but I just love to see the reactions! Also it’s much easier to get someone to like whiskey is you add a scoop of ice cream.

This Whisky Apple Float didn’t need any coaxing though, everyone just dove in.


Cider cocktails seems to be a Fall thing for a lot of people, but we buy it all year round. My kids actually don’t like apple juice as much as they like cider so we buy it whenever we see it.

This apple cider float tastes just like an apple pie dessert but in a liquid, boozy form. Come on now, what could be better for dessert? Maybe an apple pie too but you can serve that on the side.

The base of this whiskey cocktail is just Crown Apple Whisky, vanilla vodka and cinnamon. Then it gets topped of with a huge scoop of ice cream. I mean a huge scoop…



Sounds good? Yep. Sounds good to me. Make a few of these Whisky Apple Pie Floats for a dessert cocktail at your next party!


This Whisky Apple Pie Float is going to be a hit for dessert!
