Happy National Root Beer Float Day

Have a smooth and frosty root beer float on national Root Beer Float Day

Now this brings back childhood recipes. Of all soda, I liked root beer the best growing up.   How many of you remember A&W drive up restaurants? I loved the crispy bubbles that would be at the top of a root beer float. It was the best part! Just like the tops of muffins and the crumble on a berry crumble, I was happy just eating that part and giving the rest to someone else.

The story says that at the end of the 19th century, Frank Wisner invented the first root beer float in Colorado, calling it a “black cow.” To make one of these frosty beverages, just add a scoop of super frozen vanilla ice cream to a tall, frosted glass of really cold root beer. Make sure you leave room in the glass, as it will bubble and rise when you add the ice cream. Then look in the mirror at your sweet float mustache.
