This float is just like a root beer float, but with coffee ice cream and, of course, Baileys. I had the idea for Baileys floats on my birthday last Saturday with vanilla ice cream, although that was taken to whole ‘nother level when my aunt also picked up a Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream. If you’ve put Baileys in your coffee before or are only familiar with the practice (like I am), you’ll know where I’m going with this.
The Baileys blends beautifully with the root beer, taking off some of the edge that root beer sometimes has. It rounds it off slightly with the creamy notes of the coffee ice cream. In other words, as I told my aunt, it’s killer! (That’s a good thing.)
