Root beer is one of my favorite sodas because it’s so smooth and spicy.
Each sip has a buttery note with accents of cloves, cinnamon, ginger and other sassafras brewer specific combinations.
For #NationalRootBeerFloatDay I couldn’t just make a traditional float. I strolled the grocery aisles until I found something equally creamy and spicy to pour into my tall float glass – Horchata!
Have you tried horchata? It’s a Latin cinnamon vanilla spiced sweet rice milk. Living in Vegas, I can find Horchata all over town, but recently I discovered rum-spiked horchata. This is dangerous stuff because it’s so smooth.
You can make this float with non-alcoholic horchata or the good stuff. Just add a shot, fill the glass with ice cream and pour in some good root beer. Enjoy!
Root Beer Rum Horchata Float
- 1 shot rum horchata
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
- 1 glass root beer
- Pour a shot of rum horchata in a tall glass. Fill the glass with scoops of ice cream. Pour in the root beer and serve with a straw.
