I have a new obsession this Spring. a BOOZY obsession (go figure, right?!). It involves some freakin delicious, herby, rooty, organic, modern root tea, otherwise known as ROOT. It’s a sarsaprilla-ish craft liquor that’s become my new favorite thing! And no, this is NOT an ad, or a sponsored post. You guys, this stuff is just killer, and I just had to share. So, get ready to have your socks knocked off with this ROOT spiked root beer float!
Oh man. I sure do love a good old fashioned root beer float. It’s something that we rarely make at our house, and every time we make them, I wonder why! Why don’t we make these killer awesome desserts all the time?! Not like they’re hard to make or something. Just one of those things that gets overlooked I suppose. We spent a Sunday, making boozy root beer floats and then drinking said root beer floats on the deck. In the sunshine. And it was just grand.
So, ROOT is a part of Art in the Age, a collection of spirits distilled with organic, local, fresh ingredients. I am pretty much obsessed with trying ALL of them out now, but most specifically, I have GOT to try out RHUBARB (duh). OHMYGODOHMYGOD. Could there BE a more perfect booze for me? OK Art in the Age, if you are reading this, send me a bottle!
- 1 large scoop vanilla ice cream
- 2 oz. ROOT liquor
- 6 oz. root beer
- whipped cream and cherry for garnish (optional)
- Fill a tall glass halfway with ice. Add the scoop of ice cream and top with ROOT liquor. Slowly pour the root beer into the glass. Top with whipped cream and cherries. Enjoy!
Now go make a boozy root beer float!
