Boy does this bring back memories! My grandma used to make these for me and tonight it was the perfect after dinner treat. My husband loves root beer so that's how I made his. I used Coke for mine, cream soda also works well. Whatever your favorite soda you can't go wrong with this one!

Yummy!! I used cream soda instead of root beer and skipped the whipped cream and cherries...didn't need it. I remember eating this when I was a child. Thanks for sharing Lucinda.

These floats hit the spot after working in the yard all day. They looked really nice, too, with the whipped cream and cherry at the top. Thanks Lucinda!
