3 Ways to Root Beer Float this Summer


Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned Root Beer Float? There are few things I love more than whipping up a float and sitting on my back porch soaking in the hot summer days.

When it comes to food, I’m not one to try out of the box recipes. I stick to what I know. But summer is all about having fun, and trying crazy new things, right? Well, that’s what we did. And I have to admit, I’m anything but disappointed.

Checkout our twists on a classic, and let us know – how are you going to Root Beer Float this Summer?



Grown Up Root Beer Floats



  • Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
  • 1 bottle of Hard Root Beer, chilled
  • Maraschino Cherries


Ingredients needed for Adult Float


Add one scoop of vanilla ice cream to a glass. Pour the hard root beer over the ice cream.

Top with another scoop of ice cream, sprinkle with cherries and serve.

Chocolate Root Beer Floats



  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Chocolate flavored Ice Cream
  • 1 can of Root Beer, chilled

Ingredients needed for Chocolate Float


Drizzle chocolate syrup at the base of the glass, and up along the inside walls of the glass as well. It looks nice and it adds extra chocolate flavor to the float.

Place one to two scoops of chocolate ice cream in the glass – until it is filled at least halfway. Then pour the Root Beer over top of each glass slowly so that it doesn’t overflow.

Add in another scoop of chocolate ice cream; finished with swirls of chocolate syrup on top.

Cut a sliver into the ice cream sandwich cookie, and place it on the rim of the glass.

Dress up the float with whipped cream on top; top with sprinkles, chocolate chips etc.
