Ice Cream Soda
Not only is Ice Cream Soda a fun dessert for adults and kids alike, but also make for a lovely finale at a dinner party. No matter what I make, I find that people are almost always too full for dessert (ok, so I may be guilty of refilling the cheese plate until it's gone, but who am I to judge how much cheese 5 people can consume?!). Not the case with ice cream soda! The first time I made it for friends was after my first annual ladies gift exchange a few years ago. I made Julia Child's famous boeuf bourguignon and everyone was about to burst when I mentioned dessert. Most of the ladies politely declined, but as soon as I brought out a few Ice Cream Soda's on a tray, their eyes perked up! It's such a refreshing, sweet treat, it really is hard to resist. Be sure to serve it up with both a straw and spoon (I found these red striped straws at Sur la Table). Merry Sipping!
