This is a pre-mixed alcoholic root beer. I always found these sorts of products a bit strange – I mean, really, how hard is it to pour some vodka into a glass of regular root beer? – but I understand there’s a market for it. Going to the beach, perhaps, where you need a bevvy ready to go.
The flavour is pretty darn good, surprisingly. It is in the smooth-and-creamy category, with candy spices (wintergreen, licorice) and lots of sweetness. Unlike other hard root beers, the alcohol actually blends well. It’s not a thirst quencher, but rather an after dinner dessert drink.
Well done! Perfect for your next after-dinner trip to the beach.
