— Becky’s Tips:


  1. Choose a high-quality root beer for the best flavor. Avoid using diet or low-calorie versions as they may not provide the same level of sweetness.
  2. Use a sturdy glass that can handle the weight of the ice cream and the carbonation of the root beer.
  3. For a stronger alcoholic flavor, add an extra shot of spirit to the recipe.
  4. Experiment with different spirits to find your favorite combination. Some popular choices include vodka, rum, and whiskey.
  5. If you want to get fancy, try garnishing your Alcoholic Root Beer Float with whipped cream, sprinkles, or a cherry on top.



— Notes:


  • This recipe serves one. To make multiple servings, simply multiply the ingredients by the number of people you want to serve.
  • If you’re not a fan of vanilla ice cream, you can substitute it with your favorite flavor.
  • For a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the shot of spirit from the recipe.
