Now this is a food holiday worth celebrating!
could not be easier
Fill a glass 2/3 of the way with root beer.
Add a biiig scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream.
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...
Grown-Up Root Beer Float
Go out and celebrate tonight! You've all tried these before, right? If not, you're missing out!!
