Why you MUST try this WHISKEY ROOT BEER FLOAT by author Cleo Coyle


An ice cream float with whiskey? YES! The Whiskey Root Beer Float is becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. It's astonishingly delicious, and my husband and I highly recommend it for your happy hour joy. And...

While you might not think of serving a kid's ice cream float to adults at a summer cookout, or to dinner-party guests as an "impressive" dessert, Marc and I are about to give you good reasons to consider it...

A restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, charges $11 for this float. With this recipe, you can make it at home for far less--and (even better) share it with friends and family. If they're skeptical (or you are), know this...

This is not your typical ice cream float that many adults would find a little too cloying. While this recipe still gives you a lovely, old-fashioned sweet dessert drink, the bubbly root beer and cold vanilla ice cream are given much more dimension by the warm, burning brightness of the whiskey. 

There are layers of beautiful flavor here, making it much more than an overly-sweet kid's treat. It's a superb culinary experience, one you shouldn't miss!

Jameson Irish Whiskey was our choice because of its sharp, almost lemony brightness, which turns a ho-hum ice cream float into a mind-blowing HOLY COW IS THIS GOOD experience. If you try it, we hope you like it as much as we did. May you drink with joy!
