Hard Root Beer Float Recipe

Sprecher Root Beer floats are a classic treat on their own, but even better in this adult version. Vanilla ice cream with frothy Root Beer and a shot of Root Beer flavored whiskey comes together beautifully in this dessert.

Prep time: 3 minutes

Yields: 1 cocktail


2 oz Root Beer Whiskey

6 oz Sprecher Root Beer

2 scoops of vanilla ice cream


1. Add ice cream to a glass

2. Pour the shot of Root Beer Whiskey over ice cream

3. Top it off with Root Beer and enjoy


If you are local to the Glendale, WI area you can simplify this recipe even more by using our Hard Root Beer! Instead of the Root Beer Whiskey and Root Beer Soda, replace it with Hard Root Beer. You can fill up a growler from our taproom to take home for your boozy float making. Plus, come fill your growler up on Wednesdays and get a buy one, get one FREE growler fill.
