A Root Beer Float is a classic North American summer drink.
It’s a big, thick frosty mug of Root Beer with a big, creamy head of suds on it and ice cream in it.
Today, why not got a bunch of friends together and let everyone debate their favourite brand of Root Beer; then do a blind root beer tasting.
Before you do, though, read up on the history and makings of Root Beer here on CooksInfo.com, then quiz your friends on it.
Oakland A’s hold a fundraising Root Beer Float Day on a Wednesday in July or early in August, while playing baseball.
In some years, A&W Restaurants in North America offer free A&W Root Beer Floats on 20 June.
A few people plump for this day being held on 19 August.
