I don't have root beer floats much anymore. Sadly, I cannot eat dairy, so ice cream is out of the question for me. I've tried making them with soy milk ice cream but it is just not the same. Some things you just can't replace.
I did find this yummy sounding "grown-up" root beer float recipe in Garden & Gun so I'm leaving you with the link in case you would like to indulge in a sweet weekend celebration of your own!
