Now this is a food holiday worth celebrating!

Please tell me you've all had a root beer float before. They're a once-a-year summertime staple in my family, when we all decide we've been good enough for one year and now it's time to splurge on the tastiest, creamiest dessert drink of all time. OF ALL TIME.
Root beer floats could not be easier to make!

Step One

Fill a glass 2/3 of the way with root beer.

Step Two

Add a biiig scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream.

Step Three

Add a straw and a spoon, and enjoy!


You can use store brand root beer, or fancy shmancy locally bottled root beer made from cane sugar. The same goes for the ice cream: you can use classic vanilla, vanilla bean, chocolate, bourbon pecan, maple walnut... the combinations are literally endless. You can add hot fudge, or even whipped cream and a cherry, like in the image above!
And, if you're over the legal drinking age...
you can make a Grown-Up Root Beer Float by adding a shot of vanilla vodka! This is seriously delicious, and I highly recommend it (*cough cough* @marshalledgar @rodiziketan).
Go out and celebrate tonight! You've all tried these before, right? If not, you're missing out!!
Good plan @marshalledgar :D
Or maybe we'll fly to Slovenia and surprise you @rodiziketan. You never know.
Maybe I can mail you same :D
Noooo Slovenia is the best!! WE are the ones who are left out @rodiziketan, because we don't get to taste all the delicious Slovenian foods you post ^.^ or get invited to your parties!!! Haha. OH MY GOODNESS though we need to find you root beer ASAP!!! It's the BEST soda by far :)
I am so jealous of you two, but happy in the same time. I feel I am left out of so much fun just because I am from Slovenia haha. @marshalledgar and thank you for thinking of me as well. @allischaaff I don't think we have root beer here, but I will look around.
