Adult Root Beer Float

What could be better on a hot summer day than a root beer float? An adult root beer float!

With Memorial Day right around the corner, your BBQ wouldn’t be complete without this fun twist on an old favorite, combining three of my favorite things: Good root beer, vanilla bean ice cream, and vanilla vodka.

An adult beverage, refreshing cold drink, and dessert all in one, this Adult Root Beer Float will be so fun to enjoy with friends and family while celebrating the beginning of summer. 



My favorite Root Beer has always been IBC. My dad used to buy it by the case and swear that there was no better Root Beer in America. I have tried many different types, and have never found one I like better. This drink will work with whatever your favorite type is, whichever type brings back the best memories. Throw in some vanilla vodka and creamy vanilla ice cream, and you have a truly delicious and refreshing adult beverage! Perfect for Memorial Day.



  • Vanilla Vodka
  • Your Favorite Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Your Favorite Root Beer (I love IBC!)

Scoop 2-3 scoops of vanilla ice cream into a glass. Fill halfway up with root beer

Pour 1 shot of vanilla vodka (about 1.5 ounces) and then top with root beer to fill to the top of the glass

Makes: 1 root beer float
