The caramel syrup is what makes this drink special! You can also make this using orange soda with chocolate ice cream and chocolate syrup YUMMMMMM!!!

The *Brown Cow* is a perfect name, for a perfect taste, from a perfect Kitten. How appropriate a cattle farm should have this wonderful delightful treat this afternoon. I made this into 2 servings and used real, honest to goodness, "Stewarts" root beer, Bryers ice cream, and the ever so yummy caramel sauce ice cream topping lightly drizzled atop. Wonderful and will make often! Thank you Kitten for another strking-ing-ling great recipe! Made for *I Recommend* February 2009.
