Did you know that almond is the secret ingredient in many of your favorite tiki drinks? So why not take your Pina Colada to the next level by floating a shot of amaretto on top? It gives this classic cocktail a complex, nutty flavor.

If you've ever had a Cherry Lime Ricky, you know it's the perfect marriage of sweet and tart flavors. We've added a cherry liqueur floater to a frozen Margarita for a boozy spin on this soda fountain favorite.

The decadent taste of a chocolate-covered strawberry can't be beat. We've captured this amazing combo by floating dark chocolate liqueur on top of a Strawberry Daiquiri. When you try this one at home (and you should!), be sure to use a chocolate liqueur that's not cream-based.

Now you have 3 new ways to float your favorite frozen cocktail classics!
