Shooting Star Milkshake from "Phineas & Ferb"

          In Disney Channel's "Phineas and Ferb" season 1 episode "Out to Launch", the boys discover that they are the new owners of the Shooting Star Milkshake Bar located on the star their dad registered in their names (you know, you can register a star in someone's name and give them a certificate and coordinates). When Phineas and Ferb arrive on the star in their homebuilt rocket, the bar is a bit run down and business is slow but in a matter of minutes, in true Phineas and Ferb fashion when they put their minds to something, the bar is hoppin' with customers and music and the boys are flinging out the Shooting Star's signature deep pink sarsaparilla milkshakes.
(FYI: The Milkshake Bar cameos in the later episodes "The Chronicles of Meap" and "When Worlds Collide".)

Note: Sarsaparilla, a root beer-like soda often pronounced "sass-pah-rill-uh", is associated with the 19th century Old West (Yosemety Sam's drink of choice, "sassparilly"). Though there is a sarsaparilla plant native to Central and South America, the US version of the soda was often made with the similarly flavored plant Sassafrass which is native to North America (and was also used in the original recipe for root beer). Sassafrass concentrate is what I used for the recipe below, but if you can find true Sarsaparilla flavoring (which might be a little bitter in comparison) or sarsaparilla soda (then it will be more like an ice cream float) feel free to substitute it in the recipe below, but keep in mind you'll need to adjust the measurement. Just add in a little at a time until the shake gets to the flavor you like.

"One Sarsaparilla, coming up."

Shooting Star Milkshake

2 Cups Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt, Cherry or Strawberry
(I used Black Cherry for a deeper color)
1 Cup Milk (less, for a thicker shake)
1/4 Cup Pappy's Sassafras Tea Concentrate
(available in the tea section of the grocery store)
Cool Whip

1. Thoroughly combine the 1st 3 ingredients in a blender. Pour into a cup, scoop a little bit of extra ice cream on top & then tippy-top with whipped cream. Serve with a bendy straw & shake, shake, shake, shake your asteroid!
