Root Beer Floats

Besides reheating leftovers, this root beer float is the only thing I've made in the past 5 weeks.  There are many crucial factors in making a root beer float.  First, you need quality ingredients.  Barq's is, with out a doubt, the best root beer ever. Don't even get me started about my love affair with Haagen-Daaz.  We have been serious for quite a while now.  If you've got these two ingredients stocked, you're well on your way to a rockin' root beer float.  Next important factor is the vanilla ice cream to root beer ratio.  I suggest you take your glass, or frosted mug if you'r really serious, and fill it half full with ice cream.  Too little ice cream and you got yourself ice cream flavored root beer and too much ice cream gives you root beer flavored ice cream, so you imagine how vital this is.  Once you've got the ice cream in the glass, slowly pour the root beer over the ice cream.  As you can see, it gets quite foamy and if you pour to fast you will have root beer float all over your counter, which makes you a sad panda.  And nobody wants that.
