Cocktail Corner: Dutch Root Beer Float

Italy has gelato, the Midwest has frozen custard, even the future has "nitro ice cream." Fact of the matter is that summer is in its prime and sometimes a sweet frozen treat is just what the doctor ordered. But how about amping up your frozen treat with a little liquid cool? Try this indulgent Dutch Root Beer Float from Van Gogh Vodka:

Dutch Root Beer Float

  • 2 oz. Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka

  • 1 scoop fat-free vanilla ice cream

  • 6 oz. chilled diet root beer
Add the vodka directly to a tall glass, then top with root beer, and lastly the ice cream (add slowly, as it has a tendency to overflow). Garnish with a long straw and enjoy!
