To prep the ‘ghostly gate’ version of the classic dessert drink at home, simply use Häagen-Dazs Vanilla ice cream (made with only 5 ingredients, a recipe which remains unchanged since its launch 59 years ago) paired with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, cola and of course a liberal sprinkling of marshmallows for posterity.
How to make ‘The Floatbuster’
1 large scoop of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla ice cream
50ml Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
Method: Build the Jack Daniel’s & cola over cubed ice in a high ball glass and place the Häagen-Dazs vanilla scoop on top.
Garnish: Drizzle raspberry sauce on top of the ice cream and scatter with mini-marshmallows.
Founded by Reuben and Rose Mattus in New York back in 1961, Häagen-Dazs is proud of its American heritage and having created the adult luxury ice cream category, it was soon hailed as a global cultural icon of its time – and was even named the official ice cream of Woodstock ‘94.
Whilst Jack Daniel’s introduced the world to Old No.7, their signature charcoal-mellowed Tennessee Whiskey back in 1864, they became the very first registered distillery within the US and a unique worldwide icon in its category subsequently over the years.
The mouth-water combination of Häagen-Dazs X Jack Daniel’s is the ultimate Americana cultural celebration for fans to cheers the ‘Ghostbusters’ finale of Secret Sofa presented by Häagen-Dazs.
The ice-cream cola float is reminiscent of the 1980’s era when this well-loved film cemented its place as one of the most successful franchises in the history of American cinema.
For the last 8 weeks on every Friday at 7:30 pm, Secret Sofa presented by Häagen-Dazs, has facilitated a virtual film club with in-home screenings of Secret Cinema’s most celebrated and critically acclaimed films starting with ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ along with the classics like ‘Moulin Rouge’ and ‘William Shakespeare’s Romeo+Juliet’ by Baz Luhrmann now finishing with the ever popular ‘Ghostbusters’.
