Cocktail Time: A Black Cow #2 Recipe!
What on earth is a Black Cow #2?
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WONDERED… when I discovered there was a Black Cow Day. The first thing I thought of was black cows.
Like the kind that moo.
Apparently… a Black Cow is a root beer float.
Vanilla ice cream and root beer.
A brown cow (in case you were wondering) is a root beer float made with chocolate ice cream.
In my internet researching, I discovered there is an adult-beverage nod to the Black Cow. The Black Cow #2.
So one afternoon I tried one. And my first thought was… “THIS DOES NOT SUCK.”
So I gathered my video camera, a clean glass, and scooted toward a window with some light and made a quick recipe video sharing how to make this drink that does not suck.
So. You need ice.
Something with which to measure the liquids. I used a shot glass.
Make sure you have Kahlúa…
Root beer (brand of your choice)…
And some half & half…
Add some ice to your glass and start pouring! Kahlúa…
Half & half…
I love the bubbles when the root beer hits the cream…
You may want to give it a little stir. Unless you like a good punch at the finish…
If you like root beer floats… it is highly likely you will like this drink. Even if you don’t like root beer floats, you may STILL like this drink. How about Bourbon? Here’s a different Bourbon cocktail… featuring cherry cider – grab that recipe here!
I think next time… instead of half & half I might just use ice cream. What do you think?!!!
