We received an A&W Root Beer Float Kit in exchange for this post. All opinions and our love for root beer remains our own.
There is nothing quite like the taste of an all-American Root Beer Float. Today is National Root Beer Float Day and we’re celebrating with A&W Root Beer.
Growing up there was something magical about watching the A&W Root Beer pour over the vanilla ice cream. The foam it created was bubbles from heaven!
After I had my own children, the taste of A&W reminded me of my childhood. Hot summer days, my Grandma and I would go and enjoy an A&W Root Beer Float. We loved how their mugs were icy cold and the foam was deliciously flavored with the ice cream and root beer.
It became a tradition to surprise my children, like my grandma surprised my aunt and me, with the treat of an A&W Root Beer Float.
And while summer is the perfect time to indulge, Root Beer Floats aren’t seasonal. I am a fan of the classic, vanilla ice cream and the creamy flavor of A&W Root Beer, but there are so many more ways to create the perfect Root Beer Float.
A&W’s Root Beer experts have compiled ways to make the perfect all-American float, a hot fudge float, a Root Beer Popsicle and for the adults, a Bourbon Cream Float!
Let’s start with the Classic all-American Root Beer Float Recipe:
- Frosty mug
- 12 oz. of chilled, freshly made Root Beer from your local A&W (use canned or bottled A&W as an alternative)
- 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
- Remove chilled mug from the freezer
- Fill mug ¾ full with cold A&W Root Beer
- Top with vanilla ice cream and enjoy
