Let's Float Through Summer

When I was little, my mom used to enjoy Root Beer floats. To this day, I still enjoy Root Beer!
However, there are so many flavor combinations you can choose to make an ice cream float. I am here to get your creativity flowing with a few ideas to get you started.

First, pour your carbonated beverage into a tall glass.

Then, add a scoop or two of ice cream. Finish off with a straw.

For a special treat, you can top your float with whipped topping! 

Fun fact: The ice cream float was invented by Robert McCay Green in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1874. He sold vanilla ice cream with soda and offered a choice of 16 flavored syrups.
