Happy National Ice Cream Soda Day!
When I was little my dad used to take rainbow sherbet and mix it with Sprite. It was one of our favorite summer treats! We even had these super cute cups that were shaped like ice cream cones. He always called it his special ice cream soda. I was telling Jessie about the Sherbet float last week when she told me it was National Ice Cream Soda day. She asked me to guest post so it wasn't until I sat down to write this blog post that I realized there was actually a difference between Ice cream soda and an Ice cream float! I'm sure you're thinking .... what on earth is the difference, right? Well, I'll tell you! To make a float you use a flavored soda like Root Beer, Coke or Sprite and add scoops of ice cream that will "float" in the soda. With an ice cream soda you usually use soda water and add ice cream and different flavored syrups to it. With some ice cream sodas you can even add milk or cream. Yep, so all these years it turns out my Dad's "special soda" was actually a float! Either way, it was amazing and now it's my girls' favorites as well.
OK, so in honor of National Ice Cream Soda Day Jessie and I decided to add an adult twist to the traditional Ice Cream Float .... and I know technically it's Ice Cream Soda day, but this was too good to resist and since I had no clue there was a difference until yesterday let's just all go with it. Enjoy!
