Here are some tips for making adult-friendly root beer floats for your game day party:

1. Use the Best Ingredients You Can Find 
A legendary root beer float starts with high quality ingredients. Choose your favorite type of vanilla ice cream and a craft or locally made root beer that uses real sugar. Finally, a vanilla-flavored vodka completes the frozen concoction. 

2. Chill the Glasses 
A real root beer float comes in a chilled glass to keep the contents cold. Do the same on game day by placing large glass mugs in the freezer for 1-2 hours until they are chilled.

3. Mix the Ingredients
To make your  root beer float, start by adding ice to the reservoir and the vodka, root beer and ice cream to your Margaritaville® Bali™ Frozen Concoction Maker® with Self Dispenser. Mix and pour into the chilled glasses, and then serve. 

4. Make Them Extra Special
To make your root beer floats extra special for game day, add in a variety of toppings. Try a generous swirl of whipped cream, chocolate shavings or caramel sauce on top for even more indulgent frozen concoctions. 

5. Go the Distance 
Keep the frozen root beer floats flowing even into overtime by setting up your Margaritaville® Bali™ Frozen Concoction Maker® with Self Dispenser in your party space. Have lots of ice on hand as well as the essential ingredients, chilled glasses and garnishes. Serve tasty snacks alongside the root beer floats like chips and salsa, mini burritos and sliders. 

Remember to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and follow all drinking laws.
