My Score


While looking through the site, I found that "Root Beer" was not listed as an ingredient, only Root Beer Schnapps. I found this odd as I use Root Beer in many drinks.

The Root Beer Float is a favorite of mine.

I'm a lover of root beer which led me to try this, it's very surprising how well the honey and root beer go together but the vanilla ice cream helps the drink go down smoothly! One of my regulars now, enjoyed it a lot. 10/10
