Every once in a while I get a hankering for some old fashioned root beer. In fact, I had just such a desire since I wrote the post on Root Beer Brewpubs. Finally this weekend I quenched my thirst. It wasn’t a fresh brewed batch of my own but Saranac’s offering. And although I truly love root beer all on its own, I did add a little something extra.
Try out this recipe next time you’re in the mood for sweet throw-back. Its taste is reminiscent of vanilla cake frosting. Seriously.
Root Beer Cocktail
2 oz vanilla vodka
Maraschino cherry, for garnish
Fill a pint glass with ice. Add vanilla vodka. Pour root beer in to the top and stir. Drop in your cherry and you’ve got an updated, adultified (yep, that’s a made up word) soda fountain favorite.
