Last Friday, I published Friday Faves #100! While it was a lot of fun showing you a bunch of our favorite things, I decided that after nearly 2 years, it was time to change things up! So, SURPRISE! Even my daughters don't know that I've made this executive decision! But, welcome to Fun Friday! Since our Friday post carries you through the weekend, where most of the fun is usually had, we will be sharing all kinds of fun ideas on Friday, from activities, to parties, from treats to places to eat out. The boundaries of our imaginations will be the limits on this Friday feature! So, let's have some fun!
Since summer is about here, I decided to share with you something that I love and that represents fun to me! Root Beer Floats! It must be the time of year for making and enjoying them because I have already had them at 3 events this spring so far. One thing I have noticed about root beer floats is that sometimes they are served in a glass with a whole bunch of foam and some ice cream, without anything to sip really. In other words, the ice cream isn't "floating" in the root beer. I have found that this happens because of two reasons. 1-The ice cream was put into the glass first, without root beer. 2-The root beer was not chilled. I have developed a technique for making homemade root beer floats that solves the problem of the foamy, no liquid float.
First, you need to gather your equipment and ingredients:
Just click on the pictures for the directions:
Now, the ice cream will be "floating" in the root beer and there will be a reason to have a spoon and a straw! When you get to the bottom, there will be creamy, root beer flavored goodness!
I hope you have fun giving this method a try! And don't forget, you can also make other flavors besides root beer. There are Purple Cows and what Lindsey has dubbed "Orange Orangutans." Get creative and have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
