Patriotic Ice Cream Soda

June 20, 2013
Vanilla ice cream, blue raspberry soda, whipped cream, and strawberry syrup - these would be PERFECT for Memorial Day!

I'm not really sure why, but we never really grew up having ice cream sodas as a treat. We're big ice cream eaters in our family and I think making ice cream sodas was just too much work, haha! I do remember having a root beer float once at our favorite diner Nifty Fifty's in Philadelphia, and it really didn't wow me, probably because I'm not a huge root beer fan either. 

Um, hello, Kelly. You can make ice cream sodas with any kind of soda. I mean, you are a food blogger, right? 

Ok, I'm fine now. Sorry for the interruption. :)

I thought this was a cute idea, but I really wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. Mountain Dew makes a Blue Voltage soda, which is actually a raspberry flavor. When that meets up with layers of vanilla ice cream and strawberry syrup - I have to say, the flavor is amazing!! Plus it makes this really cool red, white, and blue tie-dye effect in the glass. Your kids will go crazy for this ice cream soda, my husband and I did, too!

Scoop a layer of ice cream in the bottom of your glass and drizzle some strawberry syrup on top. Repeat layers until the glass is filled. Slowly pour soda into glass. Top with whipped cream and an extra drizzle of strawberry syrup.

These would be perfect for your 4th of July cookout! What a fun treat.

  6. These look SO YUMMY! And seriously how cute?! I know my boys would love these! Can't wait to try for the 4th!

  7. Wow, I had to jump through some hoops to leave this comment. I don't get Disqus but I am in. yeah! This looks amazing. I have been looking for an easy 4th treat to make while camping and this is perfect! I am going to plan on making this. I am not a huge fan of root beer either so I make what I call a virgin root beer float, using cream soda. It looks kinda boring but tastes yummy. Thanks for sharing your recipe and have a wonderful holiday next week. Love, Wanda

  8. This looks fantastic! I'm going to add it to my list of patriotic foods to make for our party.

    Thanks so much for sharing at Katherine's Corner Blog Hop where I'm co-host today.
