We Celebrated National Root Beer Float Day! #AWRootBeer #Ad

Root Beer Float Day

    Did you know that August 6th is National Root Beer Float Day? Honestly, I couldn’t imagine a better excuse to enjoy A&W Root Beer since it has been a beloved beverage in our home since I was a little girl. My mother has loved it since she, herself, was a kid and she shared it’s refreshing taste with us when we were growing up. Who doesn’t love the nostalgic taste of a root beer float?

Root Beer Float Day

    In honor of National Root Beer Float Day, my sons and I had fun creating delicious and creamy floats using A&W Root Beer. My boys really got a kick out of filling up our color-changing mugs with vanilla ice cream and A&W Root Beer. The mugs changed from pink to orange when taken out of the refrigerator or when they were filled with cold root beer and ice cream.

    It was so nice to be able to start this tradition with our family that I used to enjoy with my own mother during my childhood. Not only did my boys get to enjoy the taste of their A&W Root Beer floats, but they also participated in making precious memories that they hopefully will cherish into their adulthood. I guess that is where the term “making sweet memories” originates from…

  1. A&W is THE only root beer for me. I have known it since I was a little girl and A&W root beer floats were our “after Sunday Mass” treats. I am glad it still is around today.

  2. If we had root beer , we would have done the same party like you. At least I would do with my vanilla ice cream. But I think, I can still make it on normal day. Wish we could have root beer in our country, so that we can also celebrate days like this.

  3. We didn’t realize yesterday was root beer float day. But we did have floats anyway – does that count?

  4. Nice, love root beer floats for many many years. I also managed to pass on this to my kids as well… LOL

  5. We haven’t had root beer floats in so many years, good idea, maybe we will make some for our son.

  6. Hahaha! It’s 9 AM and now I want a root beer float. I’m not even that fond of root beer but the ice cream in your picture has kicked off a craving.

  7. Using the opportunity to celebrate family togetherness is nice. Your creative combination looks good in the glass.

  8. I did not even know this day existed and I LOOOOVVVVVEEEE root beet floats.

  9. I know our family would celebrate with some simple board games and root beer floats! I know what this post just put me in the mood for!

  10. I will not let my boys know about this. They just had slushes from the orthodontist and are very hyper right now.

  11. I just love a root beer float! I haven’t had one in ages, so I need to pour myself a glass. They’re so tasty.

  15. I have never had root beer before, it’s not available to buy in my country. I wonder how it taste and what it is exactly. It does sound nice with ice cream though.

  16. Hannah Marie says

    Who would’ve thought there is a root beer day? This is a fantastic celebration that I know a lot of people would be interested in. That kid looks adorable.

  17. I generally avoid soda at all costs, but I have to admit to a fondness for root beer. Add a little ice cream and you really can’t go wrong.

    I don’t know who invented the root beer and its kinda cool to drink! We always have it in the office, it seems its becoming my colleagues newest favorite.

  26. Aw I wanna try this. I love beer in general but I am not really into root beer because I think it has a unique taste. But I still wanna try this especially having it with the ice cream.
