“We are bringing back tasty Real Ice Cream Floats to add to our sweet and creamy Shakes and deliciously fruity Ice Cream Slushes for SONIC Summer Nights, offering guests endless customizable options to create their own perfect flavor,” said Lori Abou Habib, chief marketing officer at SONIC. “We think everyone has endured enough cold and unpredictable winter weather for the year, so why not bring summer early? SONIC Nights is the perfect place to celebrate and indulge with our Float, Shake and Ice Cream Slush lineups, and now at half the price after 8 p.m.”

Guests can pair a refreshing soda like Barq’s® Root Beer or Fanta® Orange with rich vanilla ice cream to create a classic SONIC Float, pick and choose craveable ingredients to mix into any SONIC Shake such as the Strawberry Cheesecake Master Shake, or blend smooth and sweet Real Ice Cream into flavorful Slushes like Grape or Blue Coconut for an Ice Cream Slush.
