Iʼve mixed Bacardi and soda, flavored vodka and club soda and many other delicious combinations, but this was my first time making a voot beer and the results were, well voot-a-licious!
A voot beer
is a vodka and root beer combo. You add a generous amount of whipped cream to the top and garnish it with a cherry. If you like root beer, you will totally enjoy this spiked concoction. I personally liked it when I mixed the whipped cream in with the root beer and vodka... it added a creaminess and reminded me of a root beer float, which I love!
I would make these at my next party because they're super easy to create, a unique twist and taste good. You can also experiment with different root beer brands. There are some really neat home-brewed companies that make some seriously delicious root beer.
To make them, you'll need vodka, root beer, whipped cream and cherries. Pour 1 to 2 ounces of vodka over ice... depending on how strong you like them.
Then top with root beer. Add a good amount of whipped cream and garnish with a cherry and old-fashioned stripy straw.
Have fun and experiment with variations of the Voot Beer...
- Add ice cream and make it a Voot Beer Float
- Swap out the root beer with cream soda.
- Try a flavored vodka, such as whipped or cake-flavored
- Add grenadine for an extra cherry splash
