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.

The Regal Ransom Cocktail

In preparation for the Kentucky Derby, I’ve created a cocktail named after the top contender—Regal Ransom.

The tea and lemon balance the sweetness and compliment the oaky qualities of the bourbon. Overall, this cocktail lets the bourbon shine through while still giving you something light and refreshing.… Read more
