It’s that time of the year when we celebrate the National Root Beer Float Day.
Every August, we celebrate this nostalgic beverage usually with festivals and competitions in the U.S. In the Philippines, cafes and restaurants serve this bubbly and foamy drink.
But did you know that there are several homemade recipes for root beer float using fun and easy-to-find ingredients?
The staple, of course, is root beer. One of the brands available in the local market is Mug Root Beer, a product of Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI)—the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country.
“We are happy to see people do their own take on root beer float using Mug, as this perfectly represents the brand. It is refreshingly good, with its rich foam and unique aroma,” said Frederick D. Ong, PCPPI president and chief executive officer.
Other than the classic root beer and vanilla ice cream float recipe, the food website, insanelygoodrecipes.com, shared other fun ways to make root beer float:

• Chocolate makes everything better, so why not make a chocolate float? All you’ll need are chocolate ice cream, root beer, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings or sprinkles.
• Love cookies and cream? Turn them into a float! Make it with cookies and cream ice cream, cream soda, whipped cream, and some crushed Oreo cookies.
• For added refreshment, top the ice cream with fruits and berries.
Now, it’s our turn to try these recipes. Together, let’s raise our mugs to the star of the drink—root beer!
