Frosty, Frothy, Delight…Root Beer Floats!

Do you remember the first time you had a root beer float? I bet you do! I was about 5 years old and my dad had wanted us to taste one of his favorite refreshments! It was a hot summer day, deserving of this frothy delight! I remember my sisters and I anxiously waiting at the kitchen counter for our 3 scoops to drop into our frosty cold mugs.
