Root BEER Float has a Grown-Up Twist at BITE
National Root Beer Float Day is coming up on August 6th, but why not celebrate with a Root BEER Float that has a little more BITE? April Cook, the chic and innovative mixologist at Bite Restaurant, San Antonio, has mixed up the perfect, sweet-but-robust take on this iconic summertime treat: The Beer Float.
The float starts with a scoop of rich and creamy vanilla bean ice cream and is topped with a slow pour of a Vanilla Java Porter by Atwater Brewery. The vanilla and coffee notes of the porter meld beautifully with the vanilla ice cream, and the result is a treat reminiscent of a childhood summer favorite, but with a fun grownup twist.
If you are looking for a softer summer take on the drink, April also prepares it with a Blueberry Cobbler Ale, featuring light notes of vanilla and summer breezes. And yes, you still get the bubbles just like a fountain drink when the beer is poured over ice cream. Long summer nights are getting a little sweeter.
Now this is what I call a real sweet summer sipping treat! Get by BITE today and give it a try.
