There’s something special about root beer in a bottle. I don’t know what it is but it somehow tastes better then the root beer in a can. I don’t often drink root beer but when I do I always get it in a bottle.
Last week I was enjoying a bottle of root beer when inspiration hit. I wanted something more then just the root beer and my first thought was a root beer float. Unfortunately I didn’t have any ice cream (boo!) so that was out. Then I thought about last summer when my brother took me to a local hangout.
The special on their menu was a spiked root beer float. When I inquired about the drink the waitress told me that they had a special brew of alcoholic root beer and added ice cream to it. I was sold! When it arrived it was even more awesome then I thought it could possibly be. Sweet and creamy ice cream floating in a mug of spiked root beer. It was awesome.
I wanted to recreate the taste without the use of the ice cream. Looking in my cabinet I had a mini bottle of Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow Vodka. My thought was that the marshmallow flavor would add a similar flavor to the ice cream. Turns out I was right! It was like a cross between a root beer float and cream soda and it was delicious!
