genuine root beer float or flavoured....

mike 'n ike rootbeer float, photo credit candy warehouse
frosted mug
what do you hunger
for? is it beer?
or something
sweet-tooth
related?

transparent
glass -- etches
a design after
an hour or so in the freezer
empty and without
its contents

it begs for the vanilla
ice cream that it stood
side-by-side
with in the icebox
but the frozen confection
would not be enough

in which case
why not just
use a simple
lack lustre
ivory bowl
purchased
at ikea during
their clearance
sale?!

the answer
is indeed simple
it requires a cup
or two of root beer
and one thick
straw

and, since
i always have whipped
cream in my refrigerator
a slight dollop 
and pour of smuckers
caramel sauce

would make 
this dessert 
ambrosia
