What’s your favorite dessert beverage?

Mine is the Root Beer Float.  I don’t have them very often, but when I was a kid my parents would take us out for lunch at a place called “The Pioneer Steakout”.  They served my favorite lunch meal, the hot hamburger sandwich with fries and gravy, and I would beg my parents to let me order the more expensive Root Beer Float.  In my mind, if I could get the Root Beer Float, I’d have a drink and dessert in one order and we never got to order dessert at restaurants.

This afternoon, after lunch, I made my own float and then took a few shots of it.  That’s it, above.  I particularly like how the ice cream is starting to melt down the cup.  But it brings to mind this question:  what’s your favorite dessert beverage?

  2. I like Hot chocolate, that’s considered a dessert beverage I guess.

    LOVE Root beer floats…but we can’t get root beer here. 😦 I make a lot of fruit smoothies…a better, more healthy option. 🙂

    • Just discovered today that Pioneer Steakhouse is no more….replaced by a clothing store and now this little town has a Tim Hortons!
      My favorite would be a strawberry lemonade!

  5. Yum Yum Yum! I haven’t had one since I was a kid, but just looking at it makes me want to run out and get some root beer and ice cream. Again I say YUM!
