Root Beer and Rum Ice Cream Float

Root Beer and Rum Ice Cream Float



  1. Pour root beer into a mug.
  2. Add rum. Stir.
  3. Add ice cream until the mug is full, allowing a few seconds for root beer mixture to foam up and calm back down.
  4. Serve with a straw.


Keep a mug in the freezer and enjoy your float in a frosty mug.A local restaurant offers root beer floats. They always bring extra root beer “in case you need it.” In my experience, it’s not extra root beer, but extra ice cream that you need! That’s why I note adding extra ice cream in the recipe---per your personal preference, of course.
