For us, summer was a time for the simple things and small indulgences like an impromptu trip to the beach or pulling up to the speaker of the root beer stand. These are all experiences that I try to replicate with my own kids now that I'm an adult. Instead of worrying about expensive trips and getting time off of work, my husband and I aim for easy solutions to keep the family entertained.
We're really lucky have full access to our neighbor's pool, which is where we spend a lot of our summer days. But a couple of things that are few and far between these days are drive-in movie theaters and root beer stands! I always got butterflies when the waitress roller skated over and hooked a tray to my window before setting down a cold, frosty root beer float.
Now, I love a classic root beer float—cold root beer poured over vanilla ice cream. The "crunchy" spots in the foam were always my favorite bits (I'm weird like that). But it's also fun to mix things up a bit, so we turned a summer night around the campfire into inspiration for the floats I'm sharing with you today!
These fun root beer floats are sure to spark nostalgia in the adults and plant the seed for the kids. It's the simple things that stick with us.
Are you ready to put some fun into your summer nights? What does YOUR perfect A&W float look like?
