Root Beer Floats

When was the last time you had a root beer float? It had been a while for me, but then a week or two ago I had a dinner party and ended it with root beer floats. It was so good and brought back some childhood memories!

I had another one last night during the Grey's Anatomy finale (which, by the way, was amazing!)

This time aroud though, I realized I had made these wrong my whole life. You do root beer than ice cream, not the other way around....oops...

I love root beer floats too. I like to use diet root beer so that the ice cream gets a icy root beer crust that I can scoop off and eat.

I don't like them at all. I didn't even like them when I was a kid. I don't like it when the ice cream gets all melty.

why do you have to put the root beer first?

if you put the ice cream first then it gets all fizzy and foamy and not enough room for all the root beer!

How 'bout the Boston Cooler? It's like a root beer float, but you use Vernors.

Delicious.

That sounds more like a Michigan Cooler or Float. I would think that in Boston they use like Schweppes or some other ginger ale brand.

Vernor's: That's what we drink around here!

It's named Boston Cooler after the Boston Ave. location in Detroit where it was invented.
