Cocktail Hour: Boozy 'Root Beer' Float

One of my most abiding memories of my trip to Las Vegas last year was the amazing root beer float I had at the burger joint in the Flamingo Hotel. Yes I know, I did get married while I was there, but seriously, that root beer float was really good.

The other week I was sat having some boozy fun times with good friends in a local beer garden and noticed that they all seemed to be drinking Jagermeister and Coke. Clearly I had failed to receive the memo about this new taste sensation, which I actually thought sounded pretty gross, but I decided to try a wee sip to find out what all the fuss was about. In the name of research and all that.

My initial thought was that it tasted rather like a boozy root beer type drink, swiftly followed by the revelation that throwing a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream on top would take it to a whole new and exciting level. And thus was born the boozy 'root beer' float.

Boozy 'Root Beer' Float

You will need:
  • 1 shot of Jagermeister
  • Coke
  • Vanilla Ice Cream

Shake It!

Pour a shot of Jagermeister into a chilled highball glass and fill about 3/4 full with coke. Add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. Stir gently with a straw then raise your glass and enjoy a childhood classic with a grown up boozy twist!

  1. Well this looks pretty much perfect! And here I thought the only use for jeager was with red bull. Definitely a must for the weekend (oh alright, tonight!)

  2. Enjoy Emily! I must confess I was very much of the opinion that Jager was a fairly limited drink option so it was a very pleasant discovery!

  3. Wow! Love hearing of new ingredients...I've never heard of Jagermeister before.Is root beer supposed to resemble ginger beer?

  4. Root beer is more akin to something like Dr Pepper or Dandelion and Burdock than to ginger beer. Its a classic american drink but it is a bit of an acquired taste (as is Jagermeister!)
