Ice cream sodas! I'd read about them all the time while growing up. Archies and his gang are always at Pop Tate's having ice cream sodas. For some reason, I didn't ever have them when I was in the U.S. Or maybe I had them and didn't realize what I was having.
I fell in love with the concept and the drink at a place called "Shakes & Creams" in Madras. Ever since, I make them at every opportunity. (The opportunities come very rarely as we never have ice cream or sodas ready at home!!)
Some time ago, I had everything at home. (Soon after we had a houseful of guests for dinner.) So, I was able to enjoy this drink on a weekend. While this drink can be made with about 30 ml of vodka as well, I made it good old fashioned kiddies' way.
For one glass I used:
1 tbsp Strawberry Crush
200 ml Sprite/Plain soda
1 scoop Vanilla Ice cream
Pour the strawberry crush in a glass. Drop the ice cream over it. Pour the Sprite over this. Stir everything together and enjoy it on a hot day.
