Step 1: The Ingredients

The Ingredients
1/4 c. of your favorite chocolate syrup
8-10 oz. club soda
1 1/4 scoops of vanilla ice cream

optional garnishes
whipped cream
1 marashino cherry or many

Materials
1 frosted 12-16 oz glass (stick in freezer for a few minutes)
1 Iced tea spoon
1 straw
1 small plate (optional- but keeps the mess under control)

Hints
Use as thick a glass as possible if you want the glass to stay frosty.  Mine was not very thick, and the frost only lasted a bit.

Step 2: The Beverage

Add the chocolate syrup and 1/4 scoop of ice cream to your frosted glass.  Take your Iced tea spoon and moosh up (yes- I did say moosh)the syrup and ice cream. You want to make it smooth with no lumps.  Use this time to scrape the chocolate syrup off the side of the glass.  It makes for a prettier presentation PLUS more chocolate in your drink.  Always a good thing.
Once the chocolate mixture is smooth, add 8-10 oz. of club soda. You want about a quarter inch or so from the top of the glass so you don't make mess when adding the full scoop.  Unless you like messes...
Vigorously stir the chocolate mix and club soda until color is even.  There will be a nice foam on the top.  It adds to the presentation and texture of the drink.

Hint: 
If you are making multiple sodas, do the liquid parts on all before you add the scoops of ice cream on the edges.
