This classic drink started in the soda shops in the '50s, but soon merged into a fan favorite when it was bottled in the early 2000s. While it can still be found sparsely throughout the U.S., making the drink at home is so simple you can sip on a favorite piece of nostalgia in no time.

Vanilla Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Vanilla Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
