    To avoid making a mess - do you add the ice cream first or the soda first? Thanks!

    Haven't done this for years:scared1: I think I'd 3/4 fill the glass with soda, gently add the scoop of ice-cream and maybe trickle a little extra soda if needed.

    But like I said my kids are not enthused by the idea so I've not done it in a loooooong while (like, since I was a teenager:rolleyes1)

    I always add the ice cream first and then add the soda, I've seen them do that in restaurants as well.

    Thanks! I just don't want to be mopping up foaming soda, when there was a neater way to do it!

    I tilt the glass and add the soda against the inside of the glass. This way, the soda dribbles down the side instead of hitting the ice cream. It is somewhat less messy.
