With summertime quickly approaching, there’s nothing — nothing — like a cold frothy root beer float to top off a day at the beach, or the 19th hole, or while relaxing under the shade trees in your backyard hammock. What makes this one the best yet is the addition of Bourbon Cream by Buffalo Trace Distillery, a perfect combination of thick, delicious cream and smooth Kentucky Bourbon. It has had great reviews for enjoying straight up, over ice cream and in coffee, but our personal favorite and whole-hearted recommendation is for the Buffalo Float — the adult Root Beer Float. It’s easy! Just combine the following in chilled mug:

Recipe: Buffalo Float – The grown up Root Beer Float!
2 oz Buffalo Trace Distillery Bourbon Cream
4 oz cold root beer
To make it extra special and what we really consider a root beer float, “float” a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top (or add it to the glass before pouring in your liquids to get a frothy, overflowing effect). It’s the best, bourbon fans, the best!
