2 cups milk
2 cups strawberry sauce (recipe follows)
2 quarts strawberry ice cream slightly softened
chilled club soda or chilled seltzer water
8 strawberries for garnish
strawberry sauce:
3 cups hulled and thinly sliced strawberries
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water

Strawberry Sauce:

In a food processor or blender, in batches puree the strawberries, transfer the puree to a stainless steel or enameled saucepan, and stir in the sugar and water.

Bring the mixture to a boil over moderate heat, stirring, and simmer it for 1 minute.

Force the mixture through a fine sieve set over a bowl and chill the syrup, covered, for at least 3 hours.

Strawberry Float:

In each glass combine 1/4 cup each of the milk and strawberry sauce.

Put 2 or 3 scoops of the ice cream into each glass and fill the glasses with the club soda or seltzer.

Divide the remaining syrup among the sodas and garnish each soda with a strawberry.

I can't get enough of strawberry flavored anything, this reminds me of working at Johnny Rockets, making real 50's style malt milkshakes and drinks.
