Triple Vanilla Syrup Ice Cream Soda

By • May 29, 2011 • 10 Comments



Author Notes: The flavor of vanilla really shines in this simple ice cream soda. When I want a vanilla ice cream soda I really want to taste the vanilla. Using this triple vanilla simple syrup as your base accomplishes that. Its delicious alone with seltzer or club soda as a home made vanilla soda, add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream and you have a real treat. You can add your favorite ice cream because I find vanilla enhances just about any flavor.sdebrango

Serves 4

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 vanilla bean split and seeds scraped out
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Paste
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Either homemade or bought vanilla ice cream
  • Very cold club soda
  1. For the simple syrup, to a small saucepan add your sugar, water and vanilla bean and its seeds. Cook on medium high until all of the sugar is dissolved and has reduced a bit and is the consistency of syrup about 5 min. Let it sit until it cools a bit.
  2. After it has cooled add your vanilla paste and extract. Stir to combine. Place in a jar and refrigerate until cooled. The longer it sits the more intense the vanilla flavor.
  3. To make an ice cream soda. For a 16 ounce glass add 6 Tbs of the vanilla syrup, to that pour in a little club soda or seltzer, stir until its combined. Add one small scoop of vanilla ice cream and stir to combine the flavors. Pour in more of your club soda or seltzer so the glass is about 3/4 full and add another scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  4. To make vanilla soda, To a 16 ounce glass add 7 Tbs of the simple syrup, pour in your club soda or seltzer, stir, add ice and enjoy

Getting a bit cool around here for this type of treat now, but I am definitely saving this for a hot summer day next year.

LOL, it is a might cool for an ice cream soda, the syrup however makes an excellent hot drink. I probably should re-work this. Made a hot toddy the other night with the vanilla syrup, some spices and it was wonderful. Thanks Oui, Chef!

I must confess I've never had an Ice cream soda in my life. Something that must be remedied this weekend - Thank God its a holiday, I can sit outside, put my feet up and sip on a straw....with the glorious sun beating down my back.

And no, I won't check the forecast....for fear of bringing in the rain! Thank you!

Thank you, I love an ice cream soda, its lighter than a milk shake and has the fizz from the soda water. So delicious the soda water has to be very cold its so wonderful. Kick back and have a wonderful holiday. Hope for really good weather
