It’s that time again… It’s the #ColumboTV tweetalong tomorrow night and the episode is…
In this episode, the Lieutenant rustles himself up a Black and White Soda. I had no idea what this was, but the power of the internet has revealed it contains vanilla ice-cream, chocolate syrup, club soda, whipped cream and a cherry. So here’s one I made tonight in anticipation:
Mmmm! I used the recipe that follows, but Columbo doesn’t muck about quite so much. His method is to bung in some ice-cream, squeeze over some chocolate syrup, add some fizzy beverage, make a squeezy cream blob and stick a cherry in it. Perfect either way.
Black and White Ice-Cream Soda
3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1/4 cup / 60ml milk
2 scoops vanilla ice-cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
7 oz / 200ml club soda/seltzer/fizzy water
Canned, whipped cream/squirty cream
Cherry – preferably with a stem!
Pour the chocolate syrup into a tall glass, mix with the milk, vanilla extract and one scoop of ice-cream. Fill the glass, nearly to the top, with club soda/seltzer/fizzy water. Top with the remaining scoop of ice-cream and a dollop / squirt of whipped cream. Place the cherry on top.
