An Ode to the Root Beer Float

A tall frosty mug, sweet scoops of rich vanilla ice cream, and perfectly poured classic root beer, foaming on top. If summer could pick a favorite refresher, it would likely be the classic root beer float. It’s a quintessential taste of summer! And it’s one of those seasonal treats that just don’t seem to make sense any other time of the year. As American as hot dogs and apple pie.

Once a root beer float enters your mind, it’s hard to ignore. No matter what, no matter how hard you try, the thought sticks around until you’ve treated yourself with at least one sip. It happened to me just the other day.
