Root Beer Float for #Icecreamweek


Welcome to Day 6, the final day of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to bring you ice cream treats all week long. I hope you all threw out the scales this week. Better not to look!


Our sponsors for the event have provided us with some great prizes. A huge thanks to Cake Boss, Anolon, Microplane, WÜSTHOF, Page Street Publishing andQuarry Spoon. Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen have tossed in a bonus prize of a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker because they think everyone should own one!


Just imagine a tall glass brimming over with Vanilla Ice Cream and Root Beer. That is why I decided to make a Root Beer float for today’s festivities. There is no need to go to a Ice Cream parlor when you can make this decadent treat at home.

    The classics are Classic for the simple reason that they taste so good.
    This float looks delicious! I’ve enjoyed playing along with you this week.

    To my family, there is nothing better than root beer floats. We even drink them on the coldest day in the middle of winter,

    Root Beer float is one of my very favorites: simplicity itself. A root beer float is to me what the madeleine was to Proust.

    And funny to see this post just now, because I just got a large jug of local, small batch root beer.

    Happy summer
