Snackshot of the Day: Root Beer Float

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Root beer floats are always delicious, whether boozy or not.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a root beer float. This amazing drink/dessert hybrid is a throwback to childhood. To make one at home, pick up your favorite vanilla ice cream (don't worry, we did the taste test for you) and every root beer enthusiast has a favorite (cough cough Barq's cough). Get yourself a nice, tall glass and start with a scoop (or two) of ice cream, then slowly pour in your root beer. Feeling dangerous? Try this recipe that includes vodka and amaretto.
