"Despite the name, the Boston Cooler is a Detroit original. To be properly enjoyed, you must use Vernor's as your ginger ale. However, as it's not readily available in all markets, substitute other brands if you must."

My mom took me for Boston Cooler's at Woolworth's at their soda fountain. It was the best! Vernor's was aged for seven years in oak barrels back then. None of the websites for the real Boston Co...

I loved these as a kid in Detroit at the fountain counter at SandersIce Cream stores and i STILL love them!
