Even though it’s only February, we were in the mood for ice cream this week. An ice cream soda, to be specific.

Adult Soda
The only difficultly we had with this one was a very determined toddler who wanted ice cream and a cherry.

And no, Alex did NOT get any of this soda. I made a little one with maraschino cherry juice for her after we took pictures.

The Verdict: Adult

From The Tasting Notes –

The name definitely fits this drink. The first taste you get is of alcohol and lemon, but then it gets creamier and sweeter as you go but still maintains an acidy/alcohol kick. Very unusual, but also good. A good ice cream drink for the winter, since it really isn’t fruity enough to be a summer drink.
