Sweet Treat: Baileys Root Beer Float Recipe

Image: Cocktails.Lovetoknow.comOh, you guys.

Ever since I've been a recipe and Friendsgiving correspondent for Baileys, I've been coming across all sorts of great recipes and ideas for using the Irish Cream liqueur.

But one of my favorites? The Baileys Root Beer Float. It beautifully combines childhood nostalgia with adults-only booziness, and certainly hits many notes of deliciousness.

Here's a recipe I found, which couldn't be easier to make, and in return for your minimal effort, you get maximum deliciousness. Everyone wins!

Irish Root Beer Float

Recipe found here

This may be the simplest root beer float cocktail recipe, but it's incredibly tasty. Follow the directions the first time you make it, and then experiment with the ratio of Baileys to root beer to find your perfect flavor blend.

  • Baileys Irish Cream
  • Your favorite root beer
  • Ice

Using a tall mug, fill it 1/3 full of crushed ice. Next, add the Baileys approximately 1/4 of the way up the glass. Fill the rest of the glass with the root beer and give it a little stir with a swizzle stick.

I love the CakeSpy book! The recipes are really interesting,(I can't wait to try one,) and the little characters are super cute. I also love the 51 ways to kill a twinkie,( my favorite is leave it to godzilla's wrath.)
