  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 3 cups Cream soda
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch syrup additional to taste


  • Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream to each cup.
  • Slowly pour cream 3/4 cup of cream soda over the ice cream in each cup. (If you want more butterscotch flavor you can add a little more butterscotch syrup here).
  • Drizzle 1 Tbsp of butterscotch syrup over the ice cream and soda mixture.
  • Pipe whipped cream over the top of the ice cream and soda.
  • Add an extra 1 Tbsp butterscotch syrup.


It helps to leave the ice cream out for about 5 minutes before attempting to scoop. If it's extremely hot out it might take less time.
Another good trick is to have a cup full of really hot water that you dip the ice cream scoop in before each time you scoop.
