Root Beer, Six Ways

Rich and sweet without being heavy, there's nothing like a root beer float to end a warm weather meal. Just a bit of root beer and vanilla ice cream and presto! - simple deliciousness in a glass!  If, however, you'd like to turn this old favorite into an extra special dessert, try these ideas:

Cupcake: Root Beer Floatie Cupcakes from Blondie and Brownie

Frozen: Root Beer Sherbet from justJENN

Super Sweet: Vanilla Chocolate Chip Root Beer Floats by Paula Deen

With a kick: Guinness Float by Rachael Ray

With bacon: Maple Miso Bacon Ice Cream Bourbon Root Beer Float by The Culinary Sherpas

Cookie: Root Beer Float Sandwich Cookies from Two Bites in Suburbia

Still want to do the classic float?  Be sure to use the best vanilla ice cream and root beer you can find.  The fewer ingredients a recipe has, the more that quality matters!

Root beer is one of very few sodas I still drink, but out of curiosity, have you heard of this liquor? http://www.examiner.com/x-12663-San-Jose-Cocktails-Examiner~y2009m11d1-A-Liquor-that-tastes-like-Root-Beer-but-better-Root-Liquor-and-Recipes

My brother gave us some for Christmas and it indeed tastes like super strong root beer. The best cocktail use we've found for it so far is to pour it with Guinness in a sort of black and tan (uh, black and black in this case?) way.
