What's an old time Puff Drink? Well, a Puff is a mixed fancy beverage containing one or more kinds of flavored soda syrup with whipped cream, ice cream, or whipped white of egg all shaken well together.

Carbonated water is either injected or poured into the frothy mixture in quick dashes (spurts) to create added effervescence, and a maraschino cherry is often added as a garnish before serving.

Puffs were traditionally served in a tall tulip glass with a long spoon and without straws. They are meant to be lingered over and savored, as they taste totally refreshing and delicious.

Ice Cream Puff

One-half ounce of ice cream beat up with 1 ounce of a favorite soda syrup; then slowly fill the glass with carbonated water.
