When’s the last time you had a Brown Cow? With its perfect combination of pop (Coca Cola or Root Beer, of course) and ice cream, it really was the ultimate summer treat growing up, no? We didn’t think that anyone could improve upon such a simple-yet-delicious recipe, until we came across this colourful variation on MarthaStewart.com. If your kids have never experienced an ice cream float, Martha’s “Colourful Cow” idea is a great way to introduce them to the classic treat.
The Martha Stewart website will give you the full instructions and measurements for Colourful Cows. We like the idea of taking things up another notch with flavoured seltzer water (Canada Dry is one option, with flavours such as cherry and mandarin orange) to create even more yummy flavour combinations.
Just don’t be surprised when you start getting requests for this tasty treat all summer long!
