Cream Soda

July 15, 2011 (Day 109) — Cream Soda

Cream Soda was one of my favorite pops when I was a kid. In fact, my Monday snack as a kid was always a bottle of A&W Cream Soda and a bag of Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Fries.

One of the best taste sensations you could come up with, truthfully.

But what was truly the a treat was the sarsaparilla, root beer, and cream soda that came in the glass bottles. It was like us kids finally had a drink like our dads — and a weapon should a small, kiddy bar fight ever break out.

So, I’ve got some high hopes for this evening’s cocktail.

For proper presentation, you’ll have to make a few “prepare-ahead” steps. First, you’ll want to make sure that your Phillips Union Vanilla Whiskey has been in the freezer and is as cold as it could be. Second, you’ll want to make sure your ginger ale has been properly chilled as well. You’re also going to need an empty, clean beer bottle that’s been frozen. We’ve salvaged some of ours to keep on hand for unique drink presentations, fished from our recycle bin and sterilized.


  • Freeze Phillips Union Vanilla Whiskey
  • Chill ginger ale
  • Clean, empty beer bottle — frozen

Now, this is a super simple recipe, but you’re going to love the results.

Cream Soda

  • 2 oz Phillips Union Vanilla Whiskey
  • Ginger ale to top

Pour your ingredients into the frozen beer bottle. The carbonation will help mix it up so you don’t have to worry about shaking the bottle up and causing a mess.

This tastes dead-on to cream soda from the bottle. So, naturally, this can sneak up on you if you’re not careful.
