Ah, Summer at last! The lazy days, the smell of the ocean, the taste of all things inherently summer, what’s not to love!

How appropriate is it that National Ice Cream Soda Day falls on the eve of the official day of summer? To celebrate this fizzy, sweet day, we rounded up some “not your mama’s” ice cream soda recipes that satisfy the sweet tooth and pack a flavor punch!
