Break Out the A&W_It's National Root Beer Float Day!

"Whatcha' got there?" you might be asking! Why, it's all the fixins' we need to make an A&W Root Beer Float. "Why?" you might be asking...well, because it's 




National Root Beer Float Day (woohoo!), and what better way to celebrate than with A&W?! Whether you like it in a small cup with nothing but ice cream and A&W,


in a big color-changing mug, topped with lots of whipped cream while you're making faces at your mom,


or with silly straws and a silly brother who puts whipped cream on your nose, any time is a good time to have an A&W Root Beer Float, but today, August the 6th, is the perfect time because it's the official root beer float holiday!! Hey, I'm all for these types of holidays if it means we get to break out the ice cream fun.


A&W Root beer has a long history of creating family memories, and whether it's just me and the boy, or the bigger kids (who are all grown up and moved out) are home for a visit, I can see why. It's fun to whip up a tasty treat together as a family. The unique, creamy taste of A&W lends itself well for an ice cream drink that is simple to make but can take any family night from great to greater in an instant. If you're looking for float 'how-tos' and/or recipe inspiration so you can join in on the tasty fun, visit their website HERE.

Me? I'm headed over to get the Campfire RB Float recipe I just saw. That one looks delicious! In the meantime, cheers from us to you, and Happy Root Beer Float Day!

Ohhhh, these look tasty and children are enjoying the day as well. I always felt root beer means just alcohol, but now with your blog, I can take a breath now, it is just like a refreshing drink. I dunno whether my place has root beer or not, if there is, I will sue it on my ice-cream as well once summer arrives. Thank you for the post.

We too have root beer here in South East Asia. One of the iconic drink for rootbeer is drinking with a float ice cream. It was a hit back in the 80's!

It sounds so nice to sit down and whip beer as a family! Even though I'm only hearing of root beer day, it would be a nice family affair.

If you're going to have a root beer float, it has to be A&W.

We have one here and it's ever so fun to go and have a burger and a rood beer float. Childhood memories for me.

Your sons are most handsome.

Have a fabulous day, my friend. ♥

A campfire rootbeer float sounds pretty amazing to me. I've always been a rootbeer fan and make floats as often as I allow myself to indulge.
