For a refreshing summertime treat, try the Detroit Cooler

Put 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a tall glass then add a can of Vernor's Ginger Ale.

1. That does not sound tasty to those of us who do not like

Ginger Ale.

I like Orange Crush over my vanilla ice cream !!!

I use to like Root Beer over my vanilla ice cream.

My tastes have apparently changed because I no longer like Root Beer.

Maybe I should give Ginger Ale another try.

Maybe my taste have also shifted on it.

Have a wonderful day.

3. Vernors was the go to drink for what ailed me when I was little

My mother or grandmother had me drink it whenever I was sick. I didn't care for it then but I like it now.

2. I love ice cream floats

Being from Georgia, my favorite is with Coke but I bet Ginger Ale would be even more refreshing.

5. in Detroit we called that a Boston Cooler, adding nutmeg (for some).

Vernors is no longer barrel aged and it does not taste the same as it once did with the new designer taste molecule. I have a dozen new Vernors bottles aging in my basement. In a few more years, I'll try it again.
