Directions

Making

Chill glasses. Add ice cream. Add crumbled cupcakes, if desired, pour over the liquor(s), and top off with root beer or alcohol versions of root beer.

Serving

Serve with a wide straw…and sip away!

Note: “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” tastes like your standard root beer with a slight chocolate note and a little bit of an alcohol kick. You can tell that it contains alcohol but it’s not overpowering. It can be used in any of the above recipes.

The “Best Damn Root Beer” is labeled as a “hard” root beer meaning you will definitely be able to notice the presence, and the taste, of the alcohol. It tastes like Guinness Dark Beer and Root Beer had a baby with a mild coffee note. If you like dark beers then you’ll be fine and use it in any of the recipes.

The Chocolate Root Beer Cupcakes, whipped cream and/or chocolate syrup can be used for any of the cocktails.
