For the ice cream

To a large skillet, add the Coca-Cola and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until the soda is reduced to 1 cup, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a small bowl add water. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water. In another small bowl combine the cornstarch with a few tablespoons of the milk and whisk.

We used the Coca-Cola that comes in the glass bottles for this recipe. You can also make the ice cream in your ice cream maker and skip steps 6 & 7.
