Classic Root Beer Floats w/ Adult Version too!

by Melissa

There are some things I just have to have in the summer time and a few are┬áhamburgers, hot dogs, s’mores and most definitely root beer floats. If you love ice cream and you love root beer then root beer floats are best of both worlds. I’m sure you have all had one at some point but if not then you are missing out and should go get the supplies right away.

You can't have a summer without having a classic root beer float. If your an adult try out the adult version too.

Classic Root Beer Floats + Adult Version
Course: Dessert
Author: Melissa Coleman
Ingredients
  • Classic Version:
  • Root Beer
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Adult Version:
  • Root Beer
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Vanilla Vodka
Instructions
  1. Depending on your cup size the amount of ice cream and root beer will vary. For a small mason jar I used 1 1/2 scoops of vanilla ice cream (Vanilla Bean being my favorite).
  2. Slowly pour Root Beer to the top. You will have to drink a few of the fizzies to get it to the top.
  3. Using a spoon stir the root beer and ice cream together. You don't have to completely melt the ice cream just mix it around.
  4. For the adult version: Following the same steps as above but add 2 ounces of vanilla vodka.
Recipe Notes

Always add your ice cream first! It is way easier to control the fizzies while pouring your root beer over the ice cream rather than vice versa.

You can't have a summer without having a classic root beer float. If your an adult try out the adult version too.

 

I just love having these in the summer. They are a fun treat for kids as well. I mean who doesn’t love frosty and foamy drinks? Plus, you can get in a little science learning too. Keeping up with studies over the summer is definitely not on any kids list of to do but I think it is pretty important. If you can do it while enjoying a fun treat then two thumbs up for that.
