It’s National Root Beer Float Day! When was the last time you had this great treat?
At the end of the 19th century, a man named Frank Wisner invented the first root beer float. 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. (Note: If you reverse the directions and add the root beer to the ice cream you’ll end up with a big mess!) Good to know!!!
Today, enjoy this delicious American tradition and make your own float for National Root Beer Float Day! Or if you don’t like root beer, maybe try some cola (and for those that have fries with diet cola, have a diet) and vanilla ice cream. Or go crazy and try another flavor. How about cola and coffee ice cream for you coffee lovers. We are at the beach…have fun!!
