Speaking of another delightful mixture...Does anybody else besides my
in Chicago call a mixture of sherbet (lime or orange) and ginger ale
i never had g. ale w/ sherbet, but we used to make ginger ale floats
with ice cream and my mom told us they were called "boston coolers"
(upstate n.y.). maybe it was supposed to be sherbet.
There was a variation on the "boston cooler" in Southern Ohio, but they were
called cows. There were several variations. We would put a couple of scoops
of icecream in a glass and then pour in Coca Cola (to make a black cow),
rootbeer (to make a brown cow), or Barq's Creme soda (to make a red cow). I
have no idea why they were called cows. By the way, the Barq's Creme soda
tasted the best.
