National Coast Guard DaySaturday, August 6 is Root Beer Float Day!

The drink is also known as the “Black Cow” and Frank J. Wisner of Colorado is credited with inventing the delicious treat.

If you’ve never had one or never made your own here’s how to make the perfect root beer float.

Spoon one or two scoops of your favorite type of vanilla ice cream into an ice cold mug.

Next, pour your favorite root beer slowly into the mug, allowing room for froth at the top. Once you’ve poured as much root beer as will fit, ENJOY!
