We love Old Fashioned Root Beer Floats!
Root beer floats on a Sunday evening at the downtown drive-in is a favorite childhood memory of mine! Recreate that fun with these easy old-fashioned root beer floats that are ready in a jiffy.
Floats are a popular request from our “grands”.
It helps that Papa’s two favorite sweets are root beer and ice cream so the ingredients are almost always on hand. Make sure to chill that root beer so the ice cream doesn’t melt too quickly!
Just for fun…
My kids love trying new root beer varieties. Did you know there are stores that sell only sodas? I know, I’m the last person on the planet to know that. Seems there are a hundred varieties of every type of soda under the sun! How about a taste test with floats made out of several varieties?
Now I know those straws are optional on the supply list, but a colorful straw just says “party”! I keep a few in my silverware drawer and the grands know right where they are.
Old-fashioned root beer floats are perfect for so many occasions.
We use them for the Fourth of July, graduation receptions, a welcome home gathering when the “grands” get in from the airport, or just for fun on a warm summer evening.
