This dirty root beer float is far too delicious not to slurp down and thoroughly enjoy. It’s heavily boozed up, but the sting of the alcohol is tamed down by the addition of ice cream and root beer. It makes the perfect girls night drink — provided everyone at your get-together loves root beer floats.

Ingredients

  • 2  Tablespoons  root beer schnapps
  • small scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 3/4  Cups  root beer
  • whipped cream, for garnish
  • maraschino cherry, for garnish

Directions

Add the root beer schnapps to your cup. Then, add the vanilla ice cream. Next, pour the cold root beer over top of the ice cream slowly so it does not spill over. Finally, give it a quick stir, add a straw, and top with a swirl of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Enjoy!

Oat Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Oat Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
