Scoop some ice cream into a tall glass, preferably clear glass.
Pour in some root beer, preferably A & W.
Watch the bubbles rush to the top. Quickly get your mouth on the glass and slurp up the bubbles before they run down the sides.
Pour in more root beer.
Repeat the slurping step.
Refill with root beer.
Use a tall iced tea spoon to scoop a bit of ice cream and some soda. Do this over and over again until all you have left is a mix of melted ice cream and root beer.
Drink the luscious liquid through a straw.
Ah, that was good! It's been years since I've had a Black Cow.
After this comment from Susie,
Sounds yummy! Do you remember the A&W drive-ins with car hops? They would bring the ice cold mugs of root beer to your car. They had the cutest little minature mugs for kids!
I had to come back and add this:
Not only do I remember the car hops, I WAS an A & W car hop!
This is me heading off to my first job. We had to wear brown pants, white shirt and the official A & W orange vest. Please forgive the poor quality. The picture itself is blurry and I had to take a picture of a picture.
I made .75/hr. + tips and had plenty of cash for all the things teenage girls want to buy. Those were the days!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
