Blackberry Ice Cream Sodas
This little recipe came from a friend of mine in South Louisiana. She uses all kinds of fruit in hers, but I prefer blackberries or raspberries.
So when it gets hot this summer in your little hometown, think of this recipe and get cooled off quick.

How to Make Blackberry Ice Cream Sodas
- 1In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, 1/4 cup water and 2/3 of the berries to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the berries are very soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and press through a fine-mesh strainer set over a bowl; discard the seeds. Refrigerate until cold.
- 2Divide the ice cream among six tall 16 ounce glasses. Top with the seltzer, leaving a little space at the top of each glass. Top the sodas with the blackberry puree and garnish with the remaining berries. Serve immediately with a long spoon and a straw.
