Old-Fashioned Chocolate Soda

When I was little, my grandpa made the best iced water. I know that sounds crazy, but I'm serious! My cousin, Annie and I have discussed this. I don't know what it was, but Grandpa's water was always better than any iced water we tried to make. I'm sure that it had something to do with a little girl thinking that everything her grandpa did was always the best. One of my favorite things that my grandpa made was a chocolate soda. Making this took me back to sitting at the kitchen table with my grandpa, one of my favorite memories from childhood.

Chocolate Soda
Chocolate syrup
Vanilla ice cream
Club soda, chilled

Pour chocolate syrup in a glass, the bottom rib of a soda glass or about 1/2 c in regular glass. Fill glass up with ice cream, then top with club soda. Use a long straw to stir up the chocolate, club soda and ice cream.
