Cool off from the summer heat with a creamy root beer cocktail. Our refreshing take on the classic root beer float is made with vodka, heavy whipping cream, your favorite root beer, a vanilla bean and a frosty glass. Chill your vodka by storing it in the freezer and throw in a couple of your favorite root beer mugs 20 minutes before serving to create an extra-frosty concoction.
Creamy root beer cocktails are perfect for lazy summer afternoons, neighborhood barbecues, and 21-and-over birthday parties. This beverage is also a dad favorite, after tough lawn mowing sessions, DIY oil changes and cleaning the pool. They are simple to make, a crowd pleaser, and the old-fashioned flavor of a root beer float will take you on a trip down memory lane.
