Family Favorite

Aahhh, root beer floats!
Definitely my families favorite treat on a beautiful summer evening.
I've been collecting vintage A&W root beer mugs for many years solely because they make floats taste better. Well, at least we think so...
When I was little, it was a special treat to go to our local A&W drive-in for root beer floats. When the waitress would pull a mug from the freezer, I knew I was in for something yummy. Now, when I make an ice cream float, that's exactly what I do - pull a mug from the freezer. A frosty mug is key for the ultimate ice cream float experience.
With a frosty mug you get perfectly slushy root beer mixed with creamy ice cream - mmmm nothing is more refreshing!
Drop-ins always welcome!

Good ole A&W! I loved their floats when I was growing up even though I always had a belly ache afterwards! AND i loved having a "baby burger". I loved being the baby of the family. ☺

Well count me in, I have to drop in to taste one! I googled for the recipe, but root beer isn't available outside the US and Canada. But it looks delicious!

What a wonderful summertime collection! I STILL miss the old A&W Drive-In that we had in my hometown. Great memories.
