Make a Boozy Root Beer Float

Root beer floats will forever be one of my favorite childhood treats, but when was the last time you indulged in one as an adult? It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Well, thanks to the Root Beer Moonshine from Sugarlands Distilling in Tennesse, I bet you’ll be a bit more inclined to serve up root beer floats this spring.

Try combining the moonshine with seltzer and pouring it over a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream. Your float will be a little less sweet than if you made it with a traditional root beer, but the ice cream is sweet enough for my adult taste buds.

When you first open the jar of root beer moonshine, you’ll immediately be reminded that wintergreen is one of the primary flavors in the classic concoction. Sugarlands Distilling’s version relies on it heavily, so if you don’t like strong wintergreen, this might not be for you.

But if you are a fan of that mint-like flavor, we suggest you whip up a batch of floats ASAP — or a milkshake could work, too. Really, the possibilities are endless.
