Summer may be long gone, but enjoying a root beer float is always in season. As its name suggests, the beverage is a combination of root beer and ice cream (traditionally vanilla)
But Thirst-Day isn’t about run-of-the-mill quenchers; we’re all about the spirited variety. Today’s drink stars the coffee liqueur, and we’re making a coffee root beer float.
It’s not the first time we’ve used coffee liqueur as an ingredient. Just goes to show how we love it!
We get that a root beer float is high in calories, but it’s a really cheap date, especially when well crafted, like today’s recipe. Whether she loves hard liquor or not, she’s going to love this coffee root beer float.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Chocolate syrup
- Chocolate sprinkles
- Champagne glass
- 1 and 1/2 oz. (or 45ml) of coffee liqueur
- 1 scoop of coffee ice cream
- 2 oz. (or 60ml) of root beer
- Apply chocolate syrup and chocolate sprinkles on the rim of the champagne glass. You can do this by putting some syrup and sprinkles side by side on a flat plate, then dipping the rim with both. Make sure you dip the rim in the syrup first, then the sprinkles.
- Drizzle some chocolate sauce into the base of the champagne glass.
- Add a small scoop of coffee ice cream in the champagne glass.
- Pour the coffee liqueur over the ice cream scoop.
- Top off the glass with root beer.
- Serve and enjoy!
