This Southern Hospitality Ice Cream Float is a thing of magic.
Butter pecan ice cream + bourbon + hard root beer = float love.
So, yeah. Ice cream floats are a bit of a thing around here. And why not? They're super easy, and very delicious.
Most recently, I made a Hard Cherry Cola Ice Cream Float. V tasty.
Given that I now live in the south, I thought something with some southern flair would be appropriate. Also appropriate (though not alcoholic) given my southern locale? This Cheerwine Float.
This boozy ice cream float is a variation on something I saw on a Buzzfeed listicle. The original doesn't include bourbon, but I couldn't help myself.
- 2-3 scoops butter pecan ice cream
- 1.5 oz bourbon
- hard alcoholic root beer
Scoop the ice cream into a tall glass.
Add the bourbon and top with hard root beer.
