Soda Jerk?

Now that's a term from the past. In fact I would be willing to guess that most of todays younger generation would have no clue what I am referring to.
Thanks to my good friends at Blogging for Books I now have a better understanding of that term as well as a bunch of recipes to make the syrups and drinks that they used to enjoy. I am referring of course to the new book, the SODA FOUNTAIN by Gia Giasullo and Peter Freeman.
This book is awesome and has original recipes from the fountains in the old drugstores to make floats, sundaes, egg creams, and more. This book also gives you the recipes for making the syrups and sundae toppings among other things, so that when you go to create your masterpiece you can do it like the pros. This book is packed full of pictures, history and to be quite frank with you, tasty fun.
My family and I spent the evening trying out some of these recipes and let me tell you, what a blast it was. The only thing missing was the jukebox. It was a raging success and everyone enjoyed their treat. The one drawback is I neglected to check out the ingredients and so when you pick up your copy of this book be sure to pick up some seltzer water. Pick up a copy of this book and plan a family night, its sure to bring you closer in a fun way. I received this book for free from Blogging for books for my review.
Till next time enjoy your treat.
