Root Beer Floats

National Root Beer Float Day

Between the creamy vanilla ice cream and frothy root beer foam, how can anyone resist this sweet refreshment? On National Root Beer Float Day, we celebrate this tasty way to cool off.

At the end of the 19th century, Frank Wisner invented the first root beer float in Colorado. This early version was also known as a “black cow.” To make one of these delicious beverages, just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a tall glass of root beer. Make sure you don’t fill the glass with soda, as it will bubble and rise when you add the ice cream.

Today, enjoy this delectable American tradition and make your own float for National Root Beer Float Day!
