The Vanilla!!!! That's what I missed all these years in trying to recapture the old time soda fountain float! Kittzen your a wonder. I went full diabetic legal for a guilt free glass of nostalgia. Diet Coke and sugar free ice cream with pure vanilla. My cherry drowned in the foam but thats ok because I caught up with it at the bottom of the glass. If your best guy has any hair left style it in a D.A., head for the deck and put on du-wop music as you gaze at each other over the patio table because , my friends, this is IT!

Just made, drank and enjoyed this beverage, only changes is that I made it from diet Coke and added a pony of rum! First time I had ever thought to add booze to a float. This was my entire supper. I shall go for another walk ---- Stagger?
