I had no idea that Root Beer came from the extract of the root and bark of the Sassafras tree. My earliest memory of root beer were the giant frosty mugs at A&W. We’d order through a speaker from the car and then the waitress would bring the tray of mama and papa burgers and place it on the passenger window and then another tray would arrive with the massive mugs of root beer.
For this Halloween drink, we used our Three Olives Root Veer Vodka and Root Beer from Jones Soda. We topped it off with a generous scoop of Haagen Dazs vanilla ice cream and a maraschino cherry. Deliciously evil.
- 1 1/2 oz Three Olives Root Beer Vodka
- 4 oz Jones Soda Root Beer
- 3/4 oz Amaretto Liqueur
- 1 scoop Haagen Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream
Pour the vodka and root beer over ice. Shake, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry
