Sip, Sip, Hooray! It’s National Root Beer Float Day.

Here’s the scoop – this weekend just got even cooler. Why? Because today is National Root Beer Float Day.


Oh, the diner days when a doo-wops were for a quarter, and drinking a brain freezing root beer float was the best thing to beat the summer heat. Well, minus the brain freeze, here are five fun recipes to celebrate National Root Beer Float Day.

One classic, please.

Serve this in a chilled glass mug and you’ll be in frothy heaven…keep that nose sticky-free by using your straw and spoon!


Make it boozy.

Today is another reason to be a big kid by just adding a little (or a lot) of bourbon to this float. Cheers to that!


That’s one helluva shot.

Making mini root beer float shots are great for a party, especially for the sweet tooth kids! Wait, what kid isn’t a sweet tooth?
