Poodle skirts may be out, but the old-fashioned ice cream soda our Test Kitchen concocted is still a simply perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day.—Country Woman Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
WE OFTEN ENJOY this delicious dessert shake after dinner, when we want something cool and refreshing. It makes a lovely treat...and it brings back memories of soda-fountain drinks.
