Classic Root Beer Float

Root beer floats are a classic American dessert treat, a long-running popular offering at drive-ins and ice cream parlors. They are easy to recreate at home without any special guidance because they're pretty easy to do, but with a few tricks it is possible to create a restaurant-quality root beer float.

The key to a perfect root beer float is to start start with a chilled glass. Simply place the glass or glasses you intend to use in the freezer for an hour or two before you intend to make the root beer float. Then it is all about layering the ingredients. A single scoop of ice cream goes in the glass first, then you top it with about half of the root beer, filling the liquid halfway up the glass, but holding it at an angles so the root beer doesn't foam so quickly.

Allow the foam to settle and then place the glass back in the freezer for about 10 minutes. This will allow the ice cream and the root beer to layer in the glass, and allow the ice cream to melt just ever so slightly to infuse into the soda and become perfectly creamy.

Finally, top with one more scoop of vanilla ice cream and fill the glass all the way to the top with the remaining root beer. The ice cream will float beautifully on top of the root beer.
