I have mentioned on here (half a dozen times or so) that I am girly-impaired. Seriously, I should get the little window clingย and everything, because it is it’s own kind of sippy cup special.

Now put me in the 4 inch fancy heels of a maid of honor and watch me turn pale. That’s right, my step-sister’s getting hitched and I get to be her maid of honor. I’m excited, but I hope you all can laugh through this process of learning wedding etiquette, looking at dresses, and wondering when exactly one throws a bridal shower with me.

What I have come to terms with in the few moments that my step-sister has been engaged is that bridezillas are just a product of their environment. That, and excruciatingly dramatic levels of stress. Poor girl got a beautiful ring and now its one complicated decision after another, with a million and ten opinions every which way from Sunday. I have no idea what maid of honor protocol is, but I have decided that from here on out, any wedding planning should be done with a glass of fine wine in hand!

Or perhaps, a gallonย sized glass, filled with root beer float.

Root Beer Float Popsicles

from Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups root beer
  • 6 to 8 maraschino cherries, stemmed
  • 2 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream

Preparation:

Pour cold root beer into a pitcher and place it in the freezer for 10 minutes making it very cold and reducing some ice cream melting.

Place a cherry in each mold and pour root beer into each mold until half full.

Gently lower a scoop of ice cream into each mold so that it is now three quarters full.

Slowely add more root beer until each mold is full. Scoop off the foam with a spoon. Freeze for at least 6 hours.

Remove from the freezer and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before removing the pops from the molds.

  1. Root beer is a favorite flavor of ours, so these will be awesome! Wedding’s are stressful, all that craziness for 1 day that fly’s by and the bride and groom are usually to busy to even enjoy it! My goal when we got married is I wanted to have a party and not go broke having one! Good luck with the Maid of Honor role, just be there for her, and yes wine is a must when planning!

  5. these sound and look great Kita. For the first time I tried root beer floats few days ago and was surprised to actually like the taste.

  6. What an absolutely fantastic idea. This reminds me of the days of being in high school and going to A&W’s drive-up (up, not through) for root beer floats instead of going to school. I will definitely be making these gorgeous little guys. Thanks!

  7. Could I please have 1/2 a dozen without the cherry???? They sound amazing!!!

    1. Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Okay this recipe totally takes me back to my childhood when we had an A & W drive-in restaurant in my hometown. A root beer float was one of my favorite treats. Something about the root beer and cream together makes me so happy…

    Where can I buy those Popsicle molds? Love their retro ness!

    1. I found mine on Amazon. They had several cool options ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Haha funny cause last summer when I was a bridesmaid in 3 different weddings, as much as it would have been a huge honor, I had no desire to be the maid of honor for any of them. It was already a huge commitment just to be a bridesmaid! Good luck to you. As for these popsicles, you would think that with my root beer obsession I’ve be all over root beer float things. But somehow I prefer my root beer in its natural form. I’m strange.
