Boston Cooler Recipe

October 22, 2019

Have you ever tried a Boston Cooler Recipe? An ice cream soda composed of just two ingredients, Vernors ginger ale and vanilla ice cream.

As a Michigan native I never knew growing up that Vernors ginger ale was a Michigan thing. I thought everyone knew about it. But to my surprise, It was created by a Detroit pharmacist, James Vernor. And is also the America’s oldest surviving ginger ale.

I remember staying home from school sick with a stomach bug and sipping on Vernors. One of the only times we had pop in our house growing up. Still to this day, we get Vernors while sick. I’m not actually sure if it helps with an upset stomach, but supposedly the ginger in it is suppose to help. Either way, I’m still drinking it.

And if you are not sick and just want the tangy, ginger flavored carbonated beverage, this Boston Cooler Recipe is the way to go.
