Today’s the day! from 7.30pm, open your living room to three American cultural icons as New York-born Häagen-Dazs celebrates the finale of its Secret Sofa partnership with Secret Cinema with a screening of the 1984 cult classic, Ghostbusters, famously set in New York.
So in tribute to this immortal film, Häagen-Dazs has collaborated with fellow American icon Jack Daniel’s to bring back the popular 80’s ice cream float by recreating their own spectral ‘Floatbuster’.
And with Ghostbusters Day on Monday 8th following on from the Secret Sofa screening on Friday, there’s no better time to show off this ‘ghostly gate’ version at home using Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream – the recipe for 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 to pay homage to one of the biggest and tastiest baddies in film history, Stay Puft a.k.a. Marshmallow Man!
How to make ‘The Floatbuster’
1 large scoop 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.
