It’s hot.  It’s been a damn long day at work.  And apparently I’m not going to nap like I thought I would, so that’s right out the door now.  Instead, I’m going to make these awesome popsicles.  Because fuck today, I need some summery, cool goodness.

Root Beer Float Popsicles
Makes 6


  • root beer (I got a liter of A&W and barely put a dent in it, you could probably get a bottle or two of really nice root beer, like Sprecher’s)
  • pint vanilla ice cream (I used Haagen Dazs vanilla gelato, same difference, depends on how fancy you wanna be, but know you will definitely have some left over :P)

Take out your ice cream before hand and be sure to let it soften up.  Fill your popsicle molds about 3/4s of the way full with ice cream (see pic 1). Then, take your ice cream, and spoon it into the molds (be sure to sip up any of the foam that comes up as it settles (pic 2)), and cap.  Put the popsicles in the freezer, and wait for them to freeze, and voila, root beer floaty goodness in another awesome form.
