Root beer floats were always one of my favorite treats growing up. So when I recently found a recipe for Kahlúa Root Beer on the Kahlúa website, and it got me wondering what a Kahlúa root beer float might taste like.

Which led to thinking about how well Kahlúa French Vanilla and vanilla ice cream would pair together… And maybe throw in a few chocolate sprinkles for good measure? This was a seriously fun rabbit hole to go down.

Anyhow I went for it — and I have to say it’s totally delicious! If you’re looking for a super simple and easy Kahlúa drink, the Kahlúa root beer is a pretty amazing combination all on its own. But when you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it’s just such a decadent and slightly naughty twist on a summer classic. With ice cream or without, it’s a winner!

Kahlúa Root Beer Float + Chocolate Sprinkles

If you really want to up your game, try dipping the mugs in a little sweetened condensed milk and then in chocolate sprinkles for a fun and tasty garnish. Or a simple frosty mug will suffice, as well. Don’t forget the straw!
