Homemade Rootbeer Floats~ Simple Saturday with girlichef

Yes, I know it’s a million times easier just to buy a bottle of root beer, but it’s a million times more fun to make your own at home!! And very, very simple…fun for the whole family. Really 🙂

Easy Homemade Root Beer Floats
straight from the McCormick‘s Root Beer Concentrate Box
makes 6 cups

1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cups sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons Root Beer Concentrate

1 bottle (1 liter) cold soda water, seltzer or club soda

Vanilla Ice Cream (or another flavor if you prefer)

Bring water to boil in medium saucepan. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add concentrate; stir until well mixed. Pour into a container and refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, pour reserved root beer mixture into a pitcher and slowly pour in the soda. Stir slightly to blend. Serve immediately over vanilla ice cream in a glass. Or drink as is!
