An ice cream float with whiskey? YES! The Whiskey Root Beer Float is astonishingly delicious, and my husband and I highly recommend it as a fantastic treat for adult cookouts. It also makes a unique and fun dinner party dessert and brings plenty of joy to happy hour and family gatherings.

A restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, charged $11 for this float. With this recipe, you can make it at home for far less, and (even better) share it with friends and family. If they're skeptical (or you are), know this...

The bubbly root beer and cold vanilla ice cream are given much more dimension by the warm, burning brightness of the whiskey. There are layers of beautiful flavor here, making it much more than an cloying kid's treat. It's a superb culinary experience, one you shouldn't miss!

Jameson Irish Whiskey was our choice because of its sharp, almost lemony brightness, which turns a ho-hum ice cream float into a mind-blowing HOLY COW IS THIS GOOD experience. If you try it, we hope you like it as much as we did. May you drink with joy!
