I chose this drink more for the idea rather than practicality. Made with Three Olives Root Beer Vodka, this week’s cocktail promises every child’s delight – a root beer float. To pull this drink off the ice cream needs to be rock hard, otherwise it kinda melts into the drink. All the other other ingredients need to be super chilled as well. This a perfect drink for one of those Vegas ice bars.
Three Olives Root Beer Vodka itself is quite tasty. The makers captured the traditional combination of vanilla, cherry tree bark, licorice root and sarsaparilla root that I have loved sine my first trip to A&W many years ago.
- 1 ½ oz Three-O Root Beer Vodka
- ½ oz amaretto liqueur
- Vanilla ice cream
Shake hard over ice & strain into glass. Float a melon-ball size scoop of vanilla ice cream in center.
