  • 2 tbsp butterscotch sauce
  • 1 tsp boiling water , (can be used to dissolve butterscotch if needed)
  • 1 tsp dark rum , optional (adjust quantity to taste)
  • 355 ml Virgil's Cream Soda , at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp vanilla ice cream


  • Add butterscotch sauce to glass. If the sauce has been in the fridge, you will need to add the boiling water as well.
  • Add the rum (if using), and stir to combine with the butterscotch sauce.
  • Pour in the soda, and give the mixture a quick stir to combine. If you stir too much, you will lose the carbonation of the drink.
  • Add the ice cream, and stir briefly until a foam forms on top of the drink.
  • Serve immediately.

For a more intense beverage:

  • Warm the mixture in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then add the ice cream.


Substitutions: If you cannot find Virgil's Cream Soda, try to use another artisan or craft cream soda. You need a brown/caramel coloured cream soda to get the best taste - pink or clear cream sodas do not work as well here.
Alcohol warning: Please do not serve alcohol to children, pregnant women and others who should not consume it. If you choose to drink, do not drive.
