Purple Cow

A Grape Juice Float that Grandma made for me.

Ingredients:

1 cup Vanilla Ice Cream
1 cup Welch's Concord Grape Juice

Directions:

Scoop the Vanilla Ice Cream into a tall glass, glass mug, or as grandma did, a one pint mason jar.  Fill with the Welch's Concord Grape Juice.  Serve with a spoon.

Notes:

Grandma often made this for me when I was a kid and I had forgotten all about it until in my 50's when I moved back to St. Louis where I last had one.  My niece, nephews and godchildren all winced when I first suggested they try it, but one taste and they were hooked.

DO NOT SUBSTITUTE Grape Soda for the Grape Juice!  It is not at all the same taste or texture and is just outright wrong!

My friend, Jill Aul, was the first person I'd ever met in my life that knew of this drink before I brought it up and it was she who told me it is called a Purple Cow.  She also introduced me to this poem with the same name by  Gelette Burgess:

I never saw a purple cow,   I never hope to see one,   But I can tell you, anyhow,   I'd rather see than BE one!

Serving Suggestions:

Personally I prefer to blend it all together by hand with my spoon, which is a great test or exercise in self control.
