Root Beer Float

  • Author: Maxine Dubois
  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 1 drink 1x


This root beer float is made with vanilla ice cream, root beer, whipped cream and fresh or maraschino cherries.


  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 8 ounces root beer
  • Whipped cream
  • Garnish maraschino or fresh cherries


  1. Use a tall glass, preferably a float glass. Freeze your glasses prior to use for an extra frosty experience, about 10 to 20 minutes.
  2. Add the ice cream to the glass and pour the root beer in slowly at an angle to reduce fizz and risk of overflow.
  3. Top with whipped cream and a cherry.


Freeze your glass before for the best outcome.
