A root beer float is a fairly simple childhood favourite, just a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a tall glass of root beer. Credit for the invention of this drink goes Frank J. Wisner of Cripple Creek, Colorado, who was the owner of Cow Mountain Gold Mining Company in 1893. Legend has it that the snow-capped mountain reminded him of a scoop of vanilla ice cream, inspiring him to put one into a glass of root beer, and thus the root beer float was born. Since then it has become extremely popular among Americans, young and old alike. Where is your favourite spot to get a root beer?
