The Foodie Crush blog has put together a recipe for a sweet summer drink that is inspired by the classic root beer float. While the iconic root beer beverage is a summer staple, the drink is more of a childhood treat than an adult libation. This easy recipe uses fresh fruit and vodka to give the root beer float an adult makeover.

The sweet summer drink packs a powerful blueberry flavor and a fizzy carbonated taste. To make the blueberry flavor come through, you will need to use blended blueberry vodka and fresh blueberries for garnish. To mimic the buzz of a traditional root beer float, this recipe uses flavored seltzer. Finally, the float is finished with a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream.

The unique combination of ingredients turns a traditional float into a boozy, fruit-filled beverage that is perfect for a hot summer day.
