I have mentioned on here (half a dozen times or so) that I am girly-impaired. Seriously, I should get the little window cling 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 gallon sized glass, filled with root beer float.

Root Beer Float Popsicles

from Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone


  • 4 cups root beer
  • 6 to 8 maraschino cherries, stemmed
  • 2 ½ cups vanilla ice cream


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.

While I digest all this maid of honor-ness, sit back and enjoy a root beer float pop with me!

    This sounds so perfectly appetizing right now!

  2. 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!

  31. Tori @ The Shiksa in the Kitchen says:

    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...

  32. Lori Schankerman says:

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

    1. I found mine on Amazon. They had several cool options 🙂

  33. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says:

    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.
