By now, the Buffalo Trace Root beer Float isn’t exactly a secret.  4 parts root beer, 2 parts Buffalo Trace bourbon cream and it’s delicious.

We’re not satisfied.  So we tweaked the recipe just a tad.  We substitute hard root beer for standard root beer, and it’s fantastic.  It adds just a touch more alcohol to the flavor, making this a cold and creamy alcoholic treat.
