Happy National Root Beer Float Day!

By August 5, 2009

The Root Beer Float, a drink every adult and child loves to indulge in and one of the easiest drinks to make. Did you know that August 6th is National Root Beer Float Day? It's true and what a great excuse to step up to a mug of the best non-alcoholic drink of all time?

The classic Root Beer Float is a treat for the whole family, it's true, and may be more refreshing and fun to "drink" than any cocktail. However, if you would like to enjoy an adult version of it there is also a Root Beer Float cocktail. This one has all of the flavor, but, sadly, none of the ice cream. You win some and lose some sometimes. Also, for a slightly more sophisticated variation, Three Olives has an interesting root beer vodka that can be mixed into a Root Beer Floatini.

The root beer float is an often forgotten snack/desert. Easy to make and great tasting and who does not like to drink out of a cool mug?!

Here is a fun Root Beer Float site.
