Relive the joy of childhood with a Rootbeer Float.
This classic and nostalgic dessert drink will transport you back to carefree days filled with laughter and treats. With just a few simple ingredients, you can recreate this beloved favorite and create new memories to cherish.

But why stop at the traditional version? Let me introduce the "adult version" of the Root Beer Float. I added a touch of sweet and aromatic vanilla creme brulee coffee and a splash of vanilla rum to elevate the flavors. This infusion adds sophisticated depth and richness, transforming the drink into a warm experience. So go ahead and sip, savor, and relish the childhood memories you will forever cherish.
