Slightly off topic - Cream Soda

#1
Can anyone out there help me with this, back in the 80's there was a drink known as Cream Soda, (tasted just like it hence the name), that was very popular in Sqn/Bty/LAD etc bars.

Someone asked me the other day if I knew what went into it, I can't remember myself but I'm hoping someone out there can. Does anyone remember it?

I have searched the internet and come up with spiced rum and 7up/sprite any other recipes out there?

Ingredients are:

Vodka
Bacardi
Small Dash of Blackcurrant
Lemonade

Takes a bit of fiddling with the Cordial and lemonade until you get it right. It really does taste like the original though.

Is more like the correct answer and IIRC it was very popular drink.

Used to like that stuff in the 60's. Would foam up impressively when a dollop of ice cream was dropped into it.

Know where you are coming from loofkar... we used to do the same as kids with a large glass of cocacola and a dollop or two or vanilla icecream in the top... bloody marvelous! :wink:

Creaming Soda is available in most Oz Supermarkets. Having just tried Irn-Bru for the first time, I think they taste fairly similar!

Not this side of the equator......irn bru tastes like well "irn bru" and cream soda tastes fcuk all like "irn bru" and I dont think the original question related to either of these "soft" drinks folks.

Cream Soda. Ahhhh the things memories are made of!

We used to buy the delicious stuff in big glass bottles from the school tuck shop in the '70s. Made by R Whites, who sadly have been swallowed up by Britvic - a quick scan of their website reveals that it would appear that they no longer make the stuff anymore.

Shame.

As a Kid used to get Egg Creams at a Diner outside of Brooklyns Ft. Hamilton Army Base. That and a short stack of Buckwheat Pancakes before dad went on duty friday mornings.
