Summer season is upon us! I can’t think of anything more nostalgic than root beer floats to drink on a hot day. The kids love it. To step it up a notch for the adults, I add one more ingredient to make Boozy Root Beer Floats.
One of my favorite things about being an adult is putting a twist on my favorite childhood drinks. It seems silly, but it’s a lot of fun to taste. I imagine this is what all the adults did when I was a kid too.
Plus, when it’s only one extra step, it makes it a lot easier to do.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Root Beer
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Whiskey (I used Jack Daniels)
- Chocolate sauce *optional
- Maraschino Cherry *optional
All you have to do is make it like a classic root beer float. I add the whiskey in first, then ice cream, and then the root beer. It feels like it mixes up the whiskey the best!
I also like to add chocolate drizzle and maraschino cherries to the top of my root beer floats too. It tastes so good.
This Boozy Root Beer Float drink will be such a summer staple. Mila loves drinking root beer floats too. So, I guess she’ll be motivating me to make them all the time!
What kind of childhood drinks do you like to put an adult spin on?
