Boston Coolers


  • Vernor’s Ginger Ale (I suppose in a pinch you could use something else.  But don’t tell my Michigan peeps I said so.)
  • Vanilla Ice Cream

Add three small to medium sized scoops of vanilla ice cream to a tall glass. Tilt the glass slightly and slowly pour Vernor’s into the glass against the side to reduce foaming.  When within 2 inches of the top, pour the Vernor’s directly into the center of the glass.  The ensures that you get a good amount of ginger ale in the glass before the foam forms at the top.  You can top off the glass with a little more Vernor’s if the foamy head dies back a little.

Straws are optional.  Spoons are not.  Dig in.
