This special little cocktail is very dear to my heart, and quite possibly the reason I am where I am today. It was this unsuspecting mixture that gave me the courage and lack of inhibitions to “seduce” my now Hubby during our first meeting almost 3 years ago. Basically I was drunk and he was nice enough to simply fall in love with me rather than take advantage of the very inappropriate situation this cocktail created. It was a warm summer day on the lake… Just me, my closest friends, my future Hubby and my vootbeer. The rest is history and well worth the hangover! The Hubby and I go together like peanut butter and jelly, however, we and liquor still don’t mix. It is a very tasty concoction though.


  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 5 ounces root beer
  • Whipping cream for garnish
  • Maraschino Cherry (optional)


Fill glass (mason jar) with ice. Pour vodka over said ice and then fill with root beer. Garnish the top with whipping cream and cherry if desire. Pretty simple, right? But it will change your life!

Notes: It’s way tastier when you drink it out of a mason jar!


  1. Glad you love it too…it’s really such a simple and refreshing drink in the summer. Well, one or two of them is. 🙂
