When I was a teenager, I sold Seafair Skipper Pins at the Seattle Center, home of the 1962 World’s Fair called Century 21. I usually ate lunch at the Food Circus and it was almost always KFC (a friend of mine worked there), a Yonny Yohnson’s green salad and an Orange Julius. I’d love to have that for lunch today.
Orange Julius Smoothies
3 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
5 -6 ice cubes
Combine all the ingredients in the blender until frothy and smooth.
Makes 2 to 3 servings.
It wouldn’t be summer without Root Beer Floats…
Root Beer Floats*
1 pint vanilla ice cream
2 quarts root beer
Hang a large well packed sloop of vanilla ice cram on the edge of a fountain glass or other tall drinking glass. Fill 3/4 full with root beer. Catch any overflow on a small plate. Serve with straws and parfait spoons and don’t forget to knock the ice cream into the root beer and watch it fizz up as the ice cream floats. Yummy! This is the simplest and most favorite of fountain drinks.
Makes 4 servings
