Forget pricey desserts and their complicated recipes. Ice cream sodas are the real treat you can make within a couple of minutes.
An ice cream soda has always been a delicious treat and can be made with any flavor like kala khatta, or ice cream. Though it is super easy to whip up, there is a method in its making that everybody doesn’t know. Below, we have revealed the secret recipe of ice cream soda so that you can make your traditional ice cream soda fountain any time and take pleasure of this drooling treat.
How to Make an Ice Cream Soda?
The making of an ice cream soda is based on the real soda fountain technique that was used by soda jerks.
To make an ice cream soda that your great grandparents used to enjoy, follow the easy steps explained below:
- Put 2-3 full tablespoons of flavored fountain syrup into a frost, tall soda glass (16 to 20 ounces).
- Slowly drizzle the flavored syrup on all the sides of the glass and then pour chilled soda water in the glass to about 5 cm underneath its rim.
- Now put in a big, round scoop of fully frozen ice cream that directly rests on the glass’s rim, allowing the soda water and ice cream to foam in the mixture.
Make sure to position the ice cream on the glass in a perfect manner. If it rests too deep, the foam will spill over the drink, and if it places too high on the glass’s rim, the mixture won’t produce foam enough to call it a soda in real essence. All you need is a little practice to make a perfect ice cream soda.
Once you add all the ingredients, stir them properly, and place a long-handled spoon and straw between the glass’s rim and the ice cream. You can also garnish your beverage with whipped cream and a big red maraschino cherry, mini marshmallows or sprinkles.
To experience the best ice cream soda, you can go with the black cow, which includes chocolate syrup, root beer, and vanilla ice cream. You can also make it more delicious with a splash of bourbon, vodka or liqueur and mix different ice cream flavors are per your preferences. For syrups, you may try maple or caramel syrup apart from chocolate. But before putting these ingredients into the glass, chill it to the fullest. It will keep your soda ingredients cold for a long time.
