August 19th is National Brown Cow Day

I don't normally post things like this but when I found out that Friday August 19th is National Brown Cow/Root Beer Float Day, I felt compelled to announce it publicly, because with all of the uncertainty in the world it would seem a shame not to celebrate such a noteworthy day with gusto! 
There are still 4 shopping days until the big day so you can get out there and make your holiday preparations.

My recommended recipe is:
1) Add copious quantities of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (that plain vanilla stuff just doesn't cut it) into a tall glass.
2) Pour CHILLED (very important, you don't want the ice cream to melt too quickly) Hires Root Beer (It's still the best one, but ANY Root Beer is better than NO Root Beer at all) over the ice cream until the glass is full.
3) Remove excess foam by whatever means is deemed suitable.  The foam may actually be the best part so don't waste it.
4) Add additional root beer to bring the level back up to the top
5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the glass is as full as you can possible make it.
6) Sit back and enjoy.   
Properly prepared the treat won't pass through a straw very easily.  So, personally, I prefer to eat the concoction with a long iced tea spoon. 
While this treat is widely known and appreciated by the younger crowd, kids as old as I am have been know to enjoy it as well!
