I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

2 oz. of lemon-lime soda, and about 1/4 c. vanilla ice cream.
Put about 1 c. of grape juice and 1 c. of ice cream in blender at a time and blend for 15 seconds or less. Fill small paper cups about half full of this mixture, then add the soda and serve.
