“Despite the name, the Boston Cooler is a Detroit original. To be properly enjoyed, you must use Vernor's as your ginger ale. However, as it's not readily available in all markets, substitute other brands if you must.”

I used to love Boston coolers when I was a kid. I lived in MI, but they were popular there. I think I might try adding a pic later. Either way, we used to scoop the ice cream and then add the gingerale, to taste, more like an ice-cream float. I don't ever remember seeing the two blended together, in a blender though, not even at the ice cream shops. The combination is so delicious!

My mom took me for Boston Cooler's at Woolworth's at their soda fountain. It was the best! Vernor's was aged for seven years in oak barrels back then. None of the websites for the real Boston Cooler recipes gave that information. Even the "Vernors" site says it used to be aged for four years in oak barrels. Apparently they don't remember their own history! It was seven years aged back in the fifty's!!
