ROOT BEER FLOAT
I know what you are thinking, 'A recipe for a root beer float!', pretty basic I know. But this isn't so much a recipe as it is a reminder of something nostalgic (for most of us), delicious and easy to make.
How can a root beer float not bring you complete joy!? For me it reminds me of being a kid sleeping over at my grandparents' house. I can remember sitting in the kitchen at night and waiting for my bedtime snack which always involved ice cream. Sometimes root beer floats, sometimes she used Pepsi, sometimes it was vanilla ice cream with raspberries on top.
The love for ice cream must be genetic because my day is not complete unless I have ice cream before bed. Root beer floats are my new addiction for the week...little Kahlua, Bailey's or Bourbon...the perfect nightcap!

1/2 can root beer
