For the lactose-intolerant or calorie-conscious: Add a cup (or less, to taste) of soy milk to a cup of A&W root beer. Real ice cream is better, of course, but this is a delicious alternative for those who can't have the real thing. I used original A&W, because I was considering it a treat and I kept the portion size under control. I suppose you could do the same thing with diet A&W if you're diabetic.
