Big Entertainment, Small Budget

Hi! Friends,

Summer time means travel time. Many people start to travel overseas. Some may just stick with inland travel or short road trips. No matter what, you most likely will stop by to visit some of your friends and families. Or they come to visit you. It doesn’t mean that it always end with a big dinner and spend a ton of money. It can be a very simple and relaxing small gathering. How to get everybody entertained and the conversation going? We will check it out in these 2 newsletters. That’s right. We will split into 2 months of covering this big topic.

Happy 4th of July!

Homemade Root Beer Float

Here is one of the ways to entertain with a super low budget.


One 2-liter Bottle of Root Beer
One Box (48oz) Vanilla Ice-cream
1 can Whipped Cream (optional)
Maraschino Cherries (optional)

Just the root beer and ice-cream alone can make 4-6 very, very generous serving of root beer float. The price you pay for a serving at an ice-cream place can be more expensive of these 2 ingredients combined together.

Depending on your cup size, you may even serve up to 8-10 servings with the same amount of ingredients.

If you want to go all out, you can add whipped cream and maraschino cheery on top of each serving. And it still insanely cheap to serve an army.

So, why not invite some friends and family over to enjoy some heat chasing dessert this summer?

What's Root Beer Float in Chinese?

Believe it or not, there is no official name for root beer float in Chinese. The closest one is listed above.

You next question may be, “What made you say that?” When we were kids, we loved to go to Pizza Huts in Hong Kong. There was a dessert/drink called exactly that name. At the time, root beer was not well received by the population, but cola. So instead of using regular root beer, they used cola instead.

Check out the exclusive recipe that is easy for guest to assemble. It is perfect for those who are super health conscious.
