Homemade Strawberry Float

I have a slight obsession with Strawberry Soda.  I am not a soda drinker so I only have it a few times a year but I was in the mood for a Strawberry float so I thought I would share the recipe with you all.

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup strawberries, rinsed and quartered
club soda
vanilla ice cream

 In a small saucepan set over medium heat, combine the water and sugar, and stir.  Heat until the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the strawberries to the saucepan.  Simmer the strawberries and sugar mixture on low heat until the strawberries become very soft and the syrup has thickened, about ten minutes.  

Strain the syrup into a glass measuring cup, and discard the strawberries.  Allow the syrup to cool at room temperature for a few minutes, and then place it in the refrigerator to chill completely.  

To assemble the soda floats, pour about 2 tablespoons of the strawberry syrup into a tall glass.  Fill the glass with club soda, but remember to leave room at the top for the ice cream!   

Makes 4 floats
