Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Black Cow Day

A Black Cow is a root beer float that is traditionally made with vanilla ice cream and root beer, but it can also be made with other ice cream flavors.

Frank. J. Wisner, the owner of Colorado’s Cripple Creek Brewing, is credited with creating the first root beer float on August 19th 1893.

It is said that Wisner got the inspiration for his drink from observing the snow caps of Cow Mountain the night before, and thinking they looked like ice cream scoops on top of soda.

The first drinks were made by combining Myers Avenue Red root beer and vanilla ice cream. He soon began making the drink using cola, and it became known as the Black Cow Mountain drink. It is said that children shortened the name to the black cow.
