Shot glass, can of root beer, and rum cream liqueur

Root Beer Float – Cabin Weekend Signature Drink

In 2000, Shari’s brother Rob challenged her to develop an alcoholic drink including root beer. At the previous Christmas, she’d ended up winning a bottle of Cask & Cream, a brandy and cream liquor that she wasn’t quite sure how to use. Combining it with root beer made something that tasted just like a root beer float, and it became the Cabin Weekend signature drink.

Alas, Cask & Cream was discontinued several years ago, but there are other nice options.


  • root beer
  • cream liqueur, preferably vanilla flavored (I really like Tippy Cow Vanilla Soft Serve rum)


Slowly add one can or 12 ounces of root beer to one shot of liqueur. It will foam up impressively. Add ice if desired. Enjoy.
