Though the ginger is optional, it gives these refreshing floats their signature zing. If you can't find sparkling lemonade, substitute fizzy lemon-lime soda or ginger ale.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger (optional)
  • Premium vanilla bean ice cream
  • Sparkling lemonade

How to Make It

  1. Process first 3 ingredients and, if desired, ginger, in a blender until smooth. Divide half of mixture among 4 tall sundae glasses; top each with desired amount of ice cream. Spoon remaining strawberry mixture over ice cream; top with desired amount of sparkling lemonade. Serve immediately.
