Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Rum Chata: You can use any brand you prefer or leave it out for a kid-friendly drink.

Vanilla Ice Cream: You can use my homemade recipe to keep the Root Beer cool.

Whipped Cream: I love using fresh and homemade whipped cream, but store-bought will work just as well.

Cherries: Use these to garnish on top and add your favorite colorful striped straw.

How To Make RumChata Root Beer Float

Step 1. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass. Add the mini can of root beer into the glass before adding the Rum Chata and combine.

Step 2. Add a big dollop of whipped cream and a cherry on top with a striped straw. Serve and enjoy!

What Is The Best Brand Of Soda For This Float?

I prefer using A&W Root Beer for the best flavor, but you can use other off-brand or store-brand options. Other options can be brands like Hansen’s, Banq’s, etc.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can store any leftovers in a sealed container or cup in the fridge or freezer.
  • If you want a stronger root beer flavor, you can add a drop or two of root beer extract.
