I know, no tempering here today, but there is plenty of CHOCOLATE! It's National Root Beer Float Day so I had to make an exception.
Now I love me a root beer float, but I often feel gyped. Why? I have no idea. Maybe because the food-blogger in me is saying “it’s just ice cream and root beer” or something? I don’t know.
Maybe because when I get a root beer float I end up stirring and stirring and eating the foam and then stirring some more until the ice cream is mixed into the root beer? Then I drink it down like it’s a cream soda, no ice cream involved?
Whatever it is, I love root beer floats, but I love melted ice cream root beer drinks more.
Now, in the heat of the summer (omg, it won’t stop being hot here), I am bringing you a root beer milkshake.
