Of course, ice cream is the traditional ingredient that rises to the top of the glass, but if you’re up for trying something a little different, we suggest using a can of whipped cream - it’s a little lighter and, well, just fun to spray out of the can. Choose a pink soda and a few pink berries to top it with, and we think you’ll be as hooked to this deliciousness as we are!
