Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Bubbly and refreshing, ice cream sodas are lighter on the palate than milkshakes.

    A soda with intense Kahlua flavor. Throughly enjoyed this "adult beverage" on a sultry summer night. The flavor was maybe a little too intense for my tastes; next time I will reduce the chocolate syrup and Kahula to 1 tablespoon per serving
