It’s Thirsty Thursday, so let’s make ourselves a tasty treat!
Today, we’re making Drunken Root Beer Floats. Jägermeister is a German herbal liqueur. Some people might call it “an acquired taste,” but I’m going to let you in on a little secret: it goes GREAT with root beer.
If you’re not a fan, you can also use Vanilla Vodka.
Both Jägermeister and Vodka are best when served cold, so stick ‘em in the freezer for at least a couple of hours prior to making your drinks. You can also chill glass mugs (I used mini mason jars) in the refrigerator for little while to make ‘em extra frosty.
The recipe couldn’t be simpler: Add a scoop or two of Vanilla Ice Cream to each of your glasses, then 2 oz.* of either Jägermeister or Vanilla Vodka. Finally, fill to the top with Root Beer and enjoy!
* Since we enjoyed these for a Happy Hour treat, and since we were drinking out of mini-mugs, we used one shot of alcohol. If you’re making regular-sized floats, you may choose to double the alcohol. Always enjoy responsibly!
