Root Beer Float
- TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN
- SERVINGS: 2
This soda-fountain favorite has become a best seller at restaurants like the CommonWealth, a gastropub in Washington, DC. That version relies on Virginia's honey-based Dominion Root Beer (olddominion.com), but any artisanal root beer will do.
- 6 scoops vanilla ice cream
- Two 12-ounce bottles root beer
- Fill each of 2 pint glasses with 3 scoops of the vanilla ice cream. Add the root beer, then serve.
