I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for ICE CREAM SODAS!

Summer is here and boy-oh-boy it's getting hot! And golly it feels good to cool off with a nice ice cold soda or fudge Popsicle. But why not do something a little more old-fashioned and make an ice cream float or soda? I know they sound like something you order in a diner with waitresses on roller skates, but they are so simple to make at home - in your own "parlor" - that you'll want them for all your heat waves.

Quick Tips:

  • Pretty much any ice cream flavor, syrup, or soda will do; however, vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup are fan favorites.
  • It's important not to overfill your glass with soda. Always fill about 2 inches below the rim to keep from overflowing.
  • Soda or seltzer water must be cold.
  • Long spoons and straws are helpful to get every last drop!

Fun Fact: Ice cream floats are just ice cream and a soft drink, whereas ice cream sodas are made up of ice cream, a flavored syrup and soda water or seltzer water.
