I couldn’t start a Sprecher floats blog post without first highlighting the Sprecher Root Beer Float. This classic dessert is easy to make and great for a crowd. We serve these up in the Sprecher taproom for those of all ages. We even gave out over 16,000 floats at the Root Beer Floatilla in 2020.

Sprecher Root Beer Float Recipe

Prep time: 3 minutes

Yields 1 Float

Recipe Ingredients

1 bottle Sprecher Root Beer

2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

Recipe Instructions

Feel free to put your glass or mug into the freezer for a frosted mug. Otherwise, it tastes amazing in any pint glass. First put two or so scoops of vanilla ice cream into the glass. Pour Sprecher Root Beer over the top. Grab a straw and a spoon and enjoy!

The real question is do you drink your float with a straw only or use a spoon only? Personally, I think a combo of both is the best route to go.

Green River and Cherry Soda Sprecher Float Recipe

Moving on to the holiday Sprecher float recipes with Green River and Cherry Soda. The steps are going to replicate the recipe above but swapping out the soda flavors. You can really use any of our craft sodas in a float for a delicious dessert. Green River is a lime flavored soda that pairs well with the luscious vanilla ice cream. Our Door County Cherry Soda is made with cherry juice and honey both local from Wisconsin. This creates a great soda flavor that also is so tasty over vanilla ice cream.

The good part about all of these recipes is that you can really eyeball the ratio of ice cream to soda based on personal preference.
