August 6th is National Root Beer Float Day! Between the creamy vanilla ice cream and the sweet root bear foam, it’s almost impossible to resist this classic refreshment. August 6th is the day we celebrate this tasty treat.
At the end of the 19th century, Frank Wisner invented the first root beer float. The early versions were called “Black Cows.” Making this delicious beverage is easy. Just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a big glass of root beer. But don’t reverse those directions, or you will end up with a big mess!
Today, enjoy this American tradition and make some root beer floats for you and your friends!
