Units Scale
  • 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ounce vanilla vodka
  • 1 ounce spiced rum
  • 1 bottle root beer


  1. Scoop your ice cream into a tall pint glass.
  2. Add your booze, then pour in the root beer to fill the glass. I like to add more root beer as I go. Stir gently.


  • This drink is pretty strong. You can cut back on the booze if you like. I just keep adding more root beer.
