Recipe
Root Beer Floats

Root Beer Floats

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 large floats

Ingredients

  • 1 liter root beer
  • 4 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • Flavored syrups, such as vanilla or cherry
  • Root beer candies (for garnish)

Directions

  • Fill four tall glasses three-quarters of the way with root beer. (You may want to set the glasses on small plates to catch any overflow from the fizz.) Place 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream in each glass. Top with a drizzle of your choice of flavored syrup. Sprinkle the crushed root beer candies over the top, and serve immediately, with long straws and long-handled spoons.
