Today is National Ice Cream Soda Day. Therefore, you should invest some time in slurping Wood's Boozy Ice Cream Float. The drink is comprised of only a couple of scoops of ice-cream, alcohol and root beer. An boozy ice-cream soda is perfect to cool you down on a sizzling June summer day and offers a refreshing snap that leaves you yearning for more.

The Ice cream soda was created by the legendary Robert Green in 1874 during Philadelphia’s sesquicentennial jamboree. Sources state that the ingenious Mr Green mixed vanilla ice cream in with the soda he was selling, after unfortunately being devoid of ice. Nevertheless, it is thought Mr Green claims he generated the idea before the initiation of the event.
