LOVED IT! I made it with club soda and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream :yummy: Funny thing though, my definition of 2 large scoops must be way off because it took 4 "large" scoops to get to a milk shake consistency :lol: Thanks Kitten for another keeper!

You expect this to be wonderful and it doesn't disappoint. Great flavor in a thick, rich shake. I honestly couldn't notice the ginger ale in it. It didn't seem to add any taste, lightness or fizz but I'm sure it must have added something in a subtle way. I can tell you that it sure goes down nice. 2 mins is about right start to finish.
