This really isn’t a recipe persay…more of a revelation!
One evening as Freddy and I were getting ready to enjoy our “Thank Goodness The Kids are in Bed, Let’s have a Drink!” drink…horror struck! We are out of regular coke. AHHHHHH!!!! He drinks diet…I drink regular! I despise diet. So he will get to enjoy his rum and diet and I am left high and dry??? I don’t think so! Being the resourceful Engineer/Mommy (or just booze lover) I am, I improvised with a rum & root beer. DELICIOUS! So then I got to thinking why not go all the way with this delicousness?! Enter my Adult Root Beer Floats!
What you need:
- 2 oz Rum (I used Captain Morgan)
- Root beer
- Ice cream
Make a root beer float as normal just adding the rum! You can add as much or as little rum as you want but I make “Cheryl Drinks” so I may or may not have just eyeballed a GENEROUS amount of Captain Morgan in my float!
It was a pure awesomeness. You know what they say? When life gives you empty regular Coke bottles…make rum soaked root beer floats! Okay…maybe they don’t say that, maybe just I do!
*Best when Root beer is cold! Mine wasn’t, hence the very milky looking float pictures…didn’t matter though it was still delicious!
