National Root Beer Float Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Root Beer Float Day - Today is National Root Beer Float Day!

Consider the creamy vanilla ice cream and the frothy root beer foam: How can anyone resist this sweet refreshment? Today we celebrate this tasty summer 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 will end up with a big mess!)

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