The first drink we made after we got the bar cart was this fun concoction from A Beautiful Mess. Turns out, I find it was better without the whisky. I picked up some Blackmaker Root Beer Liqueur at BevMo, IBC root beer, vanilla ice cream, and whipping cream. I tried two different versions. Each one had root beer liqueur and root beer (equal parts or to taste). Then I added vanilla ice cream to one and a few ounces of whipping cream to the other- both delicious. The ice cream version is more fun, but the whipping cream version is easier to drink and not as sweet. Both were delightful!
Speaking of root beer. I am on a quest for the perfect root beer. I like it spicy and not too sweet. Any suggestions? I’ve tried Sprecher and another one that I’m blanking on right now. There is a cool beer shop near to us (Bottle Craft) that has a great selection of root beers. I’m buying one each time we’re in the area and hoping that one of them will be that dream root beer that I am sure exists.
