How to make a Root Beer Float! You’ll be floating! May 27, 2010

Doesn’t this just make you want to the nearest drive in with ladies that roller skate? It’s hot out and so I got to thinkin’ bout a float. I could be floating in a pool drinking/eating my float!

Guess what there’s even a boozy version! Watch this video:


Fill each glass 3/4 full with root beer. Set the glass on small plates so you can catch the overflow from the fizz.

Slowly add one scoop of vanilla ice cream into each glass. Drizzle a small amount of root beer on top of the ice cream. This will turn to foam. Keep pouring until your glass is full.

Be careful because the glasses may begin to overflow as the ice cream begins to float. If this happens, keep the foam to a minimum by pouring the root beer first, stirring and waiting for the bubbles to subside before adding the ice cream. Be sure you tilt the glass to the side and slowly pour in the root beer the same way you’d treat beer anytime you pour it.

Eat slowly, starting with the cold frozen foam on top, scooping ice cream and root beer together with your spoonUse the straws to sip the remainder of creamy root beer left in the glass.

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!

    Beth – I make one root beer float a summer. I look forward to it and enjoy the heck out of it, but it’s so rich that I only do it that once. I use A&W Root Beer and Blue Bunny French Vanilla ice cream. It’s delicious – but rich, Rich, RICH!

    Have a fantastic day!

  2. Maybe I should put some blue bunny in my German beer?
