Inspired by a classic childhood beverage, this boozy root beer float from Chandler, Arizona's Brickyard bar boasts a rich flavor and frothy texture. Replacing traditional ice cream additives with a craft cocktail mix and egg ingredients, this beverage is a grown-up version of a timeless drink that many enjoyed as children.

Featuring a unique blend of spiced rye whiskey, amaro and a brown sugar syrup, the boozy root beer float will appeal to those with a serious sweet tooth. In addition, the drink's egg white additives are topped with a garnish of cardamom bitters and fresh cocoa that balances its caramel-like syrup ingredients.

A balance between sweet and tart flavor profiles, this foamy drink opposes subtlety and is a fresh take on a soda-infused favorite.
