In the '40s and '50s, Soda Fountains 
were social gathering places -- especially 
for teens. Nearly every drug store worth 
its salt, and many burger joints, had one.
Among the most popular libations were 
flavored colas (usually made with Coca-Cola),
and "phosphates". Milk Shakes and other
Items of Refreshement.

Hope you find something to Tickle Your
Fancy at the Soda Fountian.

Soda Fountian

Flavored Colas

The most popular flavored colas were cherry, vanilla, lemon and chocolate. 
To a tall glass, add one of the following to taste: 

•Lemon Cola: Squeeze the juice of one fresh lemon wedge into glass, then drop in the lemon wedge.
•Cherry Cola: Cherry flavored fountain syrup or snow-cone syrup (or substitute the syrup from jar of maraschino cherries) 
•Chocolate Cola: Hershey's Chocolate Syrup 
•Vanilla Cola: Vanilla flavored fountain syrup or snow-cone syrup (or substitute vanilla extract and sugar syrup) 

Fill the glass about 3/4 full with chilled cola. Briskly stir-in flavoring with a spoon. Add ice.

Phosphates

Phosphates were carbonated beverages made-from-scratch by the "soda jerk" using carbonated soda water, flavored syrups and phosphoric acid, an ingredient still used today in many brands of soda-pop including Coke. Popular flavors included cherry, lime (usually called a green river), chocolate and vanilla. The variations were limited only by creativity, creating such hybrids as the cherry-lime rickey. The trick here is to find the phosphoric acid. Find a pharmacist over 50, and ask if they carry it or know where you might find some. Soda jerks kept it in a shaker bottle (like hot sauce or worchestershire) and added just a few drops to each phosphate.

To a tall glass, add one of the following to taste: 

•Cherry Phosphate: Cherry flavored fountain syrup or snow-cone syrup (or substitute the syrup from jar of maraschino cherries) 
•Lime Phosphate (Green River): Lime flavored fountain syrup or snow-cone syrup 
•Chocolate Phosphate: Hershey's Chocolate Syrup 
•Vanilla Phosphate (Cream Soda): Vanilla flavored fountain syrup or snow-cone syrup (or substitute vanilla extract and sugar syrup) 
•Cherry Lime Phosphate (Rickey): Equal parts cherry and lime flavored fountain syrups or snow-cone syrups 

Fill glass about 3/4 full with chilled club soda (no salt added). Shake in a few drops of phosphoric acid. Briskly stir-in flavoring with a spoon. Add ice.
