Slurp! 8 Best Ice Cream Soda Recipes for Summer

Ice Cream Sodas

I am a huge fan of the ice cream soda. A classic root beer float, a brown cow, you name it, I love it. I think it is the magical combination of sweet, bubbly soda and cold, creamy ice cream. It is like the ice cream magically transforms into cream soda as it melts. Ice cream sodas are also really fun for children. I’ve never met a child who doesn’t find delight in trying to slurp up the melted ice cream with a spoon. Here are some of our best ice cream soda recipes for summer. They are great for Fourth of July parties or just whenever!
