Rootin' Tootin' Root Beer Float

It's one of the very best summertime treats: a Root Beer Float! This classic is great whether you serve it up for a birthday, a cook out, movie night or "just because." We serve it here with a twist...


We recently found a Root Beer we just love, and enjoyed it along with some popcorn on a weekend movie night. Fun! You can see how to make the faux leather fringe popcorn bags *here.*



And of course, root beer floats are perfect for July 4th celebrations 


The next day it clicked: it's been years and years since I've had a Root Beer Float!  

I made this one with a twist: a scoop of Neapolitan ice cream instead of just vanilla.  

It was pretty good, but honestly you just can't beat vanilla ice cream in root beer.

I LOVE the froth and that crunchy layer of root beer ice that forms on the outer edge of the ice cream. Isn't that the BEST?!

There are a few summer rituals that we simply must hold on to: running through the sprinkler, cookouts on the grill, and Root Beer Floats! What's one of your favorite summer treats?
