This Mini Root Beer Float Recipe is the biggest hit around here!
And it’s no wonder! Just last week, I saw A&W® Root Beer at my local ShopRite and I couldn’t wait to get home to formulate a brand new, family-approved, party-friendly Root Beer Float recipe. I tried to think of all the ways I would have and still would love a root beer float. I’d love it to be mini-sized and to have ice cream toppings, too. I’d love it to be celebratory and FUN! Just like this:
Did you know that this year marks the 100th birthday of A&W Root Beer?
That’s a BIG deal, and A&W Root Beer will be celebrating this milestone birthday all year long. Chances are, you remember many hot summer nights with an A&W Root Beer. I can remember having them on the deck by the pool at my childhood house. And I can remember some pretty awesome ice cream floats in my lifetime. Root Beer Floats are the BEST! And not only is A&W celebrating its 100th birthday, but we’re celebrating National Root Beer Float Night on August 6th! You know what that means! That means it’s time to stock up on this timeless flavor!
Mini Root Beer Float Recipe for Summer:
What You Need:
A&W® Root Beer
Light Corn Syrup
Vanilla Ice Cream
4 oz glasses
Colorful paper straws (we cut ours in half for small glasses)
Pastry Bag with 1 1M tip (can use whipped topping or real whipped cream)
What You Do:
1 – First pour chocolate sprinkles onto a small plate or in a shallow dish
2 – Next, use a paper towel and pour a little corn syrup on it – rub on the rim of the glass
3 – Then, dunk the rim into the sprinkles, and repeat with each glass
4 – Add a small scoop of ice cream to each cup
5 – Then, add A&W Root Beer just until it’s at the top of the glass
6 – Wait a minute until the bubbles settle and then top off with more
7 – Lastly, top with whipped topping and a cherry – serve with a fun straw
So, what do you think? I can’t wait to celebrate National Root Beer Float Night on August 6th, as well as A&W Root Beer’s 100th birthday! I can see lots of fun summer nights with family and friends! We love that A&W is a nostalgic way to satisfy cravings, share a treat with loved ones, and create happy memories together! I have loved ShopRite for all of my life! It was my local grocery store as a kid in my childhood house. Even now, it still has that local grocery store feeling but with a wide variety of products for summer and everyday living. I’m so excited to celebrate!
One thing that’s really fun is how you can customize your Mini Root Beer Floats. Use rainbow sprinkles instead of chocolate! Use different types of ice cream and whipped topping. Put a strawberry instead of a cherry. Do whatever you want! It’s super fun and it’s time to celebrate!
