  • 5 cups root beer
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Giant Pixy Stix candy
  • Maraschino cherry


Pour root beer into a large (about 2 quarts) straight-sided vase. Slowly add scoops of ice cream to fill. For the straw, trim off the ends of a Pixy Stix (available at and empty out the powder. Top the float with a cherry. Once you've wowed the crowd with the big float, ladle into regular-size glasses.
