It's National Root Beer Float Day today!  This tasty summer treat, also known as "brown cow" or "black cow," is traditionally made with root beer and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but there are all kinds of newfangled float flavors that might just uproot this old-fashioned favorite.  How about an orange creamsicle float? Or a nice mug of frozen butterbeer? Feel free to add a little Bailey's Irish Cream or Guinness for a grown-up twist!  Whether you're sticking to the classic or fixing up a fancy alternative, these delicious ice cream float recipes are certain to please.
