Soda Fountain

Summer Girl Soda

August 26, 2016

Still hot? Me too! How about this vintage soda fountain creation? Raspberry, orange and vanilla in frothy foam…with all those pastels, it’s no wonder the Pacific Northwest, Meier & Frank department-store chain called this the Summer Girl Soda. According to fourth-generation Frank family-member Gerry Frank, generations of sweet-loving Frank family members pretty much ensured that the soda-fountain creations, and desserts served in the Meier-Frank department store restaurants would be worth coming back for. While the stores, and their restaurants are gone, this signature recipe, requested by a reader, survives.
