We are keeping it simple tonight. An ice cream float. Being back in New England I have great access to Birch Beer, so that is tonight's flavor. Feel free to substitute Root Beer, Coke, Orange soda, Black Cherry Soda or your favorite other flavor.
2 big scoops (or 3 little scoops) Vanilla Ice cream
1 can soda, tonight Birch Beer
Into a nice big glass, plop the ice cream. Top slowly with soda. YES, it is supposed to fizz up like that, and if you have done it right it is going to fizz over and make a mess on the counter...remember you are channeling your inner kid. Wipe it up later!
