Summer days are the perfect excuse for chugging sweet ice cold drinks. Why not whip up a root beer float? Veryculinary.com shows you how. Just gather a few key ingredients:
1. Root beer
2. Vanilla ice cream
3. Whipped cream (optional)
4. Tall glass
5. Spoon or straw (you'll want a wide straw)
Hankering for a twist on the classic? Be creative and try the reverse (ice cream on top)!
Or, The Adult Version:
-1¼ ounces vodka
-1¼ ounces root beer schnapps
-¾ ounce Godiva Chocolate liqueur
Add ingredients to a martini shaker, shake and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a root beer candy stick.

If you're on-the-go, Wendy's makes a pretty decent Frosty float. I usually get it with Dr. Pepper, but you can try the Barq's root beer if you like.
FYI, July is National Ice Cream month! Go spread the love.
