[Keiki and me in our hotel room after a visit to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C. Please note awesome new hoodie (grey, zip-up, with "Blackbird SR-71" embroidered on it).]

Keiki and I returned yesterday from a four-day trip to the States, during which I ate and drank All The [American] Things. It occurred to me, during my third root beer* float, that I have a very specific way of consuming a float. First, I use the long spoon (there must always be a long spoon) to eat the foam created by the initial contact between the ice cream and the root beer. Then I use the long spoon to poke the scoop of ice cream around, scraping off the bits that are melting into the root beer. When I'm finally bored of that, I stir the remaining ice cream into the root beer until it's well blended. Only then do I drink it through the straw (there must always be a straw).

So now I want to know, how do YOU consume your ice cream soda?

* Root beer, for UK persons who have not had the pleasure, is a bit like dandelion & burdock. Except sweeter, of course.

That is EXACTLY how I do a root beer float. I like it when the root beer freezes into delicious little root beer icicles on the side of the ice cream.

Root beer floats were my grandmother's specialty. They remind me of her.

Root beer icicles! Yes!

My uncle used to brew his own root beer (and beer beer as well, but I didn't get to taste that :P). It was soooo good, and it made the best floats.
