Best Ice Cream Soda Recipes

Easy, delightful combinations to enjoy all summer long

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.

Red, White, and Blue Shooters

These awesome shooters are made red and white by the sorbet and vanilla ice cream. The blue comes from the soda! Served in small glasses, they are perfect for your little ones this summer.
