Who wants a root beer cocktail? Besides me me me.
Serious as in ROOT BEER!
I’ve rambled at an annoying length about how I don’t like carbonated drinks and therefore really don’t care for any form of soda at all – and never have. Occasionally I want a diet Coke or something (like once a year?) and sometimes, often on vacation, I’ll have a few sips of root beer. It’s like the treat that only tastes great once in awhile.
This is like that. Super fun for a once-in-a-while surprise. Sort of like cream soda too!
Oooh ooh oh I also made root beer BBQ sauce once! That stuff is SO good. I’ve made it every summer at least once.
Creamy drinks aren’t something I want all the time. But every now and then, they are SO good. I feel like they are a winter treat that are most enjoyed when sitting by the fire. Not that I ever sit by a fire. At least not at the moment. But sitting on the couch and sipping this while watching This Is Us sounds a lot better than drinking my tears that won’t stop flowing while that show is on.
You only need THREE ingredients. Yes, three. And it tastes like heaven.
It starts with black spiced rum. Then we have our root beer. And then, a drop of Baileys. OH MY GOSH. This is heaven in a glass.
It could definitely be served as a dessert drink, but it’s a really fun happy hour cocktail too!
Basically, let’s have a party together and make it.
Root Beer Rum Creams
- crushed ice
- 2 ounces dark spiced rum
- 6 ounces root beer
- 1 to 2 ounces Baileys Irish Cream liqueur
Fill a glass with crushed ice. Add the rum and root beer, gently stirring to mix. Top the drink off with the Baileys, stirring gently to mix. Serve immediately!
