Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda
I remember when I was little, my grandparents would take me on a morning stroll every weekend. After awhile, I realized what happened when we went on a morning stroll. We stopped at this little store, that really made you feel like you were at home, and I would get a Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda. This sweet treat always made me feel special, and it was the most delicious drink I have ever tasted. That store is long gone now, and so is my favorite sweet treat. Having kids of my own now, I wanted them to experience the same memories I had, and it all started with a soda.
I had to search and search to find a recipe that was even similar to the one I had many years ago, but none of them seemed perfect. So you know what that means, yes, I had to make my own. After many failed attempts, I finally perfected the Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda that was only available in my memories. The secret to the perfect soda is whipping cream!! It turns it into this delicious and creamy drink that everyone will love. What makes this recipe so great, is that it can be doubled or tripled and used as a party treat.
