Root Beer Martinez at 9 Restaurant in New York City

Though perfect for a dessert cocktail or as a sweet beverage, don't let this drink fool you — it's packed full of alcohol. 9 Restaurant mixologist Gennarose revealed that root beer is used to mellow out the strong taste of the coffee liqueur.


  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ounce Stoli Vanilla
  • 1 ounce Patron XO Café
  • Root beer, to top


In a cocktail shaker or glass, muddle the vanilla ice cream until creamy (you don't want it to be chunky). Add the Stoli and liqueur and stir. Pour into a martini glass and top with the root beer. (It will take a few minutes for the root beer to float down and for a nice froth to create on top.)
