Ice Cream Soda, All Grown up.

Summertime hits and everyone goes into slim & trim mode trying to get themselves looking right before the end of the season arrives. Usually people realize its too damn hot to be running around and working out, so they give up and go back to trying to staying cool while drinking lots of cold libations to stay fueled up.

A great treat that can be made at home for a fraction of the cost of what you find them for at stores is the always classic “Ice Cream Soda” not to be confused with the Rootbeer Float.

Today June 30th, is National Ice Cream Soda Day.
Take a few moments, take yourself back your childhood and make a few of these for yourself and the kids.

If the Ice Cream Soda is going to be for yourself, kick it up a notch with a few dashes of flavored rum such as Bacardi Dragon Berry or any one of the million flavors offered up by Malibu.

Either way, enjoy this drink today, tomorrow and over the weekend when the temperatures are expected to reach 100. 

Whatever you choose to do, do it responsibly.

8 fluid ounces carbonated water
1 fluid oz, Passion fruit flavored syrup
1 fluid oz, Watermelon flavored syrup
1 Heaping scoop of Sherbet or Vanilla ice cream
1 oz of Bacardi Silver Rum
Whipped Cream (fresh whipped cream works & tastes best)

Make ice beforehand and fill a tall glass with a couple of ice cubes.
Add the ice cream
Add the carbonated water & Bacardi
Pour in the watermelon and passion fruit flavored syrups, leaving enough room at the top of the glass for the whipped cream
Add as much whipped cream as you desire
Stir and drink.
