Sharing is caring!

A Rum Root Beer Float is a delightful blend of rich dark rum, creamy vanilla ice cream, and fizzy root beer. This classic soda fountain treat is transformed with a boozy twist, creating a dessert cocktail that’s perfect for a relaxing evening or a fun gathering with friends.

Tasting Notes

The Rum Root Beer Float combines the deep, caramel flavors of dark rum with the smooth, sweet creaminess of vanilla ice cream. The root beer adds a refreshing, slightly spicy kick, and its carbonation lightens the drink, making it both indulgent and easy to sip. The result is a harmonious blend of flavors that balances sweetness, creaminess, and a hint of alcohol warmth.
