National Root Beer Float Day

Step aside A&W - today we're serving Grown Up Root Beer Floats!

Another arbitrary, yet goofy national food holiday has clamored its way across my computer screen. Today is National Root Beer Float Day. And you bet I can turn this childhood treat into an alcoholic beverage to enjoy this Friday night – where there’s a will there’s a way!

A (Big Kid) Root Beer Float Recipe:
1 part Hiram Walker Root Beer Schnapps (I like HW for the all-natural ingredients, rather than flavorings, that recreate that Root Beer taste)
2 parts milk or cream (skim milk if I can have things my way)
4 parts lemon-lime soda

Combine ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth.

I’ve found this drink to be best served in a beer mug, but you can easily get away with using a pint glass as well.

If Root Beer Floats don’t quite “float” your boat, I would recommend a post-date celebration of any of the following monumental holidays that took place this week:

8/4 – National Champagne Day
8/5 – International Beer Day

Cheers all around!
