I don’t know about you but I LOOOVE root beer. I mean I love the flavor, the soda, the candy, drinking it with my cheeseburger and fries, eating it with ice cream . . . and NOW as an ale??? That’s right. Last month, while roaming the aisles of the local Trader Joe’s, I stumbled across this new item and could barely believe my own eyes! I of course had to try it [DUH!] and oh-my-goodness loved it [SO YUMMY!] that’s why today I thought it would be fun to not only share with you this amazing new hard drink BUT also show you how I used it to take my “root beer float” game up to the next, ridiciously-insane level :) ENJOY!
Place two scoops of gelato in a wide-mouth mug and SLOWLY pour hard root beer over top . . . otherwise you will have a slightly explosive mess on your countertop!

Now I know this recipe is obnoxiously simple BUT I had to share, because it’s seriously so easy and freaking delicious that if you don’t try it, I am going to question every single “life” decision you’ve made thus far ;) plus, it’s the perfect Halloween treat just for adults!
