Vanilla Rootbeer Float Cocktail


Today I am sharing a super fun cocktail recipe to celebrate Friday and Valentine’s Day weekend! This Vanilla Rootbeer Float cocktail is every bit as fun as it sounds. I actually am not the biggest pop/soda fan in general, but I usually make an exception for cocktails. I don’t think I’ve ever had a glass of coke or Pepsi- but maybe had a few rum and cokes. But that’s it! Pop was not my thing. However, bubbly drinks in delicious cocktails I can do. Especially when they involve vanilla creamer and coconut ice cream!

What’s not to love about taking the childhood favourite rooter float and turning it into an adults-only cocktail. Bonus- make these for the whole family and just leave the rum out of the kids’ drinks!

You can use your favourite rum in this drink – my favourite is Bumbu. I’ve also used Bourbon in this cocktail when I didn’t have any rum and it was pretty good too! This recipe calls for vanilla vegan creamer, but if you prefer your drink to be a bit less sweet, use unsweetened creamer or milk and a splash of vanilla extract instead.
