Everyone loves a root beer float, and root beer floats are perfect summer treats. A little sweet, little savory. Not Your Father’s Root Beer has a nice extra kick to it as an adult beverage and I quite enjoy them. So I figured, hey, why not make an adult root beer float and kick it up a notch while I’m at it! So I added a little bit more of a kick by adding some whiskey, too! This Whiskey Caramel Root Beer Float will give you all the kick you want in your adult root beer float plus a little more.
