This summer I sipped on these root beers poolside quite a bit and I’m still relishing in how good it is. Being a food blogger of course I couldn’t just leave it alone in all it’s glory. I had to turn it into a boozy root beer float. Top this with the bourbon drizzle and you will probably watch some people lick that mason jar clean.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float
1 Bottle of Not Your Father’s Root Beer (found in most liquor stores)
3 Large Scoops of good Vanilla Bean Ice cream
1 Shot of Bourbon or Whiskey (optional but… necessary)
for the brown sugar bourbon sauce
3 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter
1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
Pinch of Salt
1 Shot of your Favorite Bourbon or Whiskey
Fill a mason jar with vanilla ice cream, add in shot of bourbon or whiskey, fill with Not Your Father’s Root Beer.
In a small sauce pan whisk brown sugar, salt and butter together on medium-low heat until sugar is dissolved. Add in shot of bourbon and whisk until smooth. Top over root beer float.
