Yum Yum: Virgil’s Classic Root Beer Float

 Recipe: Virgil’s Classic Root Beer Float

With summer heating up, there’s no better way to cool down than with everyone’s favorite refreshing summer sip – a Root Beer Float! And if you need another reason to enjoy this treat, tomorrow (August 6th) is National Root Beer Float Day. 

I have to tell ya'll, my favorite root beer is Virgil's Handcrafted Root Beer.  It tastes great and every ingredient in Virgil’s is all-natural, which means no preservatives, no aspartame and no artificial colors. 

Better yet, Virgil’s offers a Zero Sugar Root Beer option as well that is zero calories and certified ketogenic for those looking for a healthier rendition of the summertime treat. (I found the Zero Sugar Root Beer at my local Target.)


•       Virgil’s Handcrafted Root Beer (or Zero-Sugar Root Beer)

•       Vanilla Ice Cream



1. Get a nice tall glass (preferably a mighty mug!)

2. Drop one scoop of vanilla ice cream into the bottom of the glass

3. Pour Virgil’s root beer over the scoop until it fills up about halfway

4. Drop another scoop of vanilla ice cream into the mix

5. Fill to the top of the glass with Virgil’s!

6. Grab spoon and experiment with your preferred balance of ice cream and root beer in each bite
