July is National Ice Cream Month and is peppered with specific individual holidays, such the previously covered, "National Strawberry Sundae Day." The week of July 20th is especially busy, with no fewer than five holidays, beginning today.
To say I am indifferent to ice cream sundaes would be an overstatement. I like the most iconic rendition, the root beer float, but my more often than not I want to enjoy my ice cream in a non-liquid vehicle, such as a waffle cone or cup (with or without toppings).
There is also the under-appreciated "Boston Cooler," made with ginger ale and vanilla ice cream. Somewhat puzzling is the fact that many recipes call for this drink to be made with Vernor's Ginger Ale, the pride of Michigan, rather than some Massachusetts- or New England-based soda.
