Our own, original Rum Sundae cocktail is a grown up and rather more boozy take on the classic Ice Cream Sundae.
The Ice Cream Sundae’s history has been lost in the passing of time, not unlike that chunk of banana at the bottom of your sundae bowl - however it seems fairly likely that the confection was created at one of three soda shops in America. One version of the story contends that the Sundae was first created due to by-laws that stopped soda-shop owners from selling soda on Sundays, as their product was too “frilly” for the day of rest!
Another possible history suggests that a shop owner used the same soda syrup to top his ice cream but only offered the dish as a special on Sundays. When the dish soared in popularity he kept the name Sunday, with a small twist in spelling to Sundae, so he could sell the ice cream treat every day of the week.
Our Rum Sundae contains no ice cream and can be enjoyed on any day of the week but is just as much a joy as those early ice cream parlour treats!
