The recipe starts with vanilla vodka in combination with Galliano, a gold-colored herbal liqueur that specializes in the flavors of vanilla and anise. In place of vanilla ice cream, cream is used then root beer is finished off with the recipe.
If you’re in the mood for a spiked root beer float, this is an excellent and easy recipe. It doesn’t even require any ice cream (though you can use ice cream in its place) and it’s absolutely wonderful.
- It doesn’t have to be Galliano as you can substitute another dark liqueur or vanilla schnapps to make it just as good. Alternatively, a double shot of vanilla vodka would do.
- Pour the liquors then add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, gradually pour the root beer over the ice cream.
- You can find some fantastic options of root beer that you can use for cocktails that are better than those made by the big soda manufacturers. The following bands are all excellent choices: Boylan, Bundaberg, Dang!, and Triple XXX.
