Hummingbird How-To: The Original Root Beer Float

If you’re from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, or pretty much any upper Midwestern or Canadian area like me, you’re bound to know what a Root Beer Float is. However, If you don’t know, you’re really missing out. In my opinion, this sweet treat is not only one of my favorite little desserts of all time, it’s also the perfect little thing for filling a sweet tooth craving, without feeling outrageously guilty. There are lots of low-fat options and many different combinations so you can make it your own.

I made the real-deal, traditional Root Beer Float with quality ingredients, like Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and authentic Root Beer from a great grocery store here in New York. Because Root Beer isn’t as popular a drink here as back home, it was quite hard to find the root beer I wanted.

My mother always used to make it as a movie night snack with her homemade popcorn. To me, it reminds me of a simpler time, and when I make it, it brings back such nostalgic feelings of my childhood. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

On to the Float!

1. Pick out your ice cream. Since I’m making the original, I went for Vanilla Bean. You can choose whatever you want though, like chocolate, frozen yogurt, a gelato/sorbet, or maybe eve Neapolitan.

2. Choose your beer. Now again, going for the traditional, get a Root Beer. Mine is also made of Cane Sugar, which gives it great, sweet flavor. If you’re personalizing it, you can choose another kind of carbonated drink, like Coco-cola, Pepsi, etc.

3. Grab a mug (I went for a vintage Mason Jar. You can get these at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $2.50, or at a vintage shop for about $1.00). Have your ice cream ready and start scooping the desired amount into the mug.

4. After that, grab the root beer (or carbonated drink) and start slowly pouring it into the mug. This is a chemical reaction so it will kind of look like a science project gone awry, but don’t worry, as long as you’re careful it shouldn’t overflow (For mine however, I did overflow it, only for dramatic effect).

5. Add a spoon, and voilà! you have a traditional Root Beer Float. I hope you enjoy every bit of it. Let me know what you think of it!
