Ingredients
  

Base

  • 1 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 6 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. rum extract

Topping

  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cups heavy cream

Per Glass

  • 48 oz. cream soda

Instructions
 

Base

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine brown sugar and water.
  • Bring to gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240°F on a candy thermometer.
  • Stir in butter, apple cider vinegar, and a third of the heavy cream.
  • Set aside to cool to room temperature. Once the mixture is cooled, stir in the rum extract.

Topping

  • In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of brown sugar mixture and the remaining heavy cream.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened but not completely whipped (about 2–3 minutes).

Per Glass

  • Divide brown sugar mixture among four tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass).
  • Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass. Stir to combine.
  • Fill each glass near to the top with additional cream soda and add the whipped topping.

Notes

  • Feel free to reduce the butter to taste (up to 2/3).
  • The rum extract can be replaced with vanilla extract.
  • Try adding pumpkin pie spice to taste for a unique flavor.
