rootbeer float for adults

the other night i was making rootbeer floats for my kids and took

2 parts vodka
2 parts rootbeer
1 part bailey's

fo myself. i served it over ice and it was just OK. i found that the bailey's was too sweet. but it added the right cream flavor. any help on getting this one right would be appreciated.

  1. They make Root Beer Schnapps, why not give that a try instead of Baileys. Also Vanilla Schnapps is available to substitute for the ice cream.

    I have never tried making one, but with a little tinkering you can probably get there.

    1. That sounds pretty good. May I suggest: 1 bottle Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout (no chocolate in there, just black as dark chocolate; maybe use Guiness if U can't get it) + 1 1/2 scoops Hagan Dasz natural bean vanilla ice cream. nom, nom, nom.
