What makes a drink a float?

A drink becomes a float when it is paired with a generous scoop of ice cream, traditionally vanilla. The ice cream is added to a glass or mug, and then soda or root beer is poured over it, creating a soda fountain classic.

The carbonation from the soda adds a bubbly texture to the velvety ice cream, while the sweetness of the soda and creaminess of the ice cream blend for a refreshing taste sensation.

Though the root beer float is the most popular variety, any soda can create a float, making it a customizable treat that appeals to a wide range of taste buds.
