Vodka Root Beer Floats From Minimalist Baker
After testing several different types of liquor paired with root beer, the husband and wife team behind Minimalist Baker, John and Dana, settled on vodka being the perfect accompaniment. They even make their own coconut-based dairy-free cinnamon toast ice cream to go with their Vodka Root Beer Float, which makes this a must-try recipe for any dessert lover.
Yields: 2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
- 2 cans Hansens Root Beer (or other natural soda)
- 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) quality vodka (Kahlua and dark rum also worked nicely)
- 4 scoops cinnamon toast ice cream
Split a can of soda between two large glasses and then add a shot of vodka to each.
Carefully drop two scoops of ice cream into each glass, and then top off with remaining can of root beer.
Slurp, scoop and enjoy!
