reminds me of working at the 50's Restaurant Johhny Rockets, making all the old fashion drinks, shakes, and malts.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In each glass combine 1/4 cup each of the milk and strawberry syrup.
  2. Put 2 or 3 scoops of the ice cream into each glass and fill the glasses with the club soda or seltzer.
  3. Divide the remaining syrup among the sodas and garnish each soda with a strawberry.
  4. In the food processor or in a blender in batches puree the strawberries, transfer the puree to a stainless steel or enameled saucepan, and stir in the sugar and water.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil over moderate heat, stirring, and simmer it for 1 minute.
  6. Force the mixture through a fine sieve set over a bowl and chill the syrup, covered, for at least 3 hours.

Hi Bri22: We love your Strawberry Ice Cream Soda! You mentioned that you worked in Johnny Rockets. Could you please tell me how to prepare their Vanilla Shake? (Malted?) Thank you. Lois
