(Campus)Lifehacker: Orange creamsicle floats at the Ratty

For those who feel a little sick after their 100th consecutive delicious waffle cake for desert when dining at the Ratty, try a delightful, refreshing alternative: the Ratty orange creamsicle float. Here’s how you make it:

1. Grab a glass. Grumble to yourself about how ridiculously small the Ratty cups are compared to the V-Dub’s normal-sized ones.

2. Go to the soda machine that dispenses Fanta, located to the back left of the Ratty. Fill it up halfway.

3. Get some vanilla soft serve, located in the Bistro section. Grumble to yourself how the ice cream is so inconveniently located from the Fanta machine, and how walking/exercise is the worst.

4. Put the vanilla ice cream in the orange soda. Grab a spoon, stir it up, and enjoy!
