4 FOOD & FASHION, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1984 y V 'MA ' . v v i 'Btinr,v' Coast to coast regional floats.

Don't Desert Root Beer Floats Just Because It's Winter Just because the cold months have arrived, is no reason to give up the pleasure of root beer floats. A "make your own float" ending to a dinner party is a nice alternative to the more usual "make your own sundaes" dessert. A root beer float is both dessert and after dinner drink in one and has another bonus, there is no caffeine. Experimenting with different ice creams adds a whole new dimension to one of America's favorite drinks. Try our root beer float recipes from different parts of the country. Anne Lindsay Greer of Dallas recommends trying Texas favorites, cinnamon or praline ice cream. She feeis root beer floats go great with barbecue and nachos (the rich smooth taste of the float balances the spiciness of the food). Up in Burlington, Vermont, Ben & Jerry's, the town's favorite ice cream spot, serves root beer floats with maple walnut or heath-bar crunch ice cream. Margaret Fox, owner of Cafe Beaujolais in Mendocino, California, would stick with vanilla or maybe opt for crunchy butter brickie ice cream. In Maryland, you'll find root beer floats served with coconut and peach ice cream. Traveling around the country, you should be aware of differences in root beer floats nomenclature. For example, in the Midwest, order a Brown Cow if you want a vanilla ice cream root beer float, a Black Cow if you want a chocolate root beer float. In Kentucky a root beer float is called an ice cream soda No matter where you are, the "safe" way to get a delicious ice cream treat is to order root beer with any of the ice creams recommended, or the ice cream typical of your reigon.
