Hires root beer, with vodka mixed in!  They sell this in a can, pre-mixed, at the liquor store.  Slightly thinner colour than usual root beer — it’s actually semi-transparent.

It smells like Hires root beer, but with paint thinner mixed in!  The flavour is not complex, and it’s a touch sweeter than I would like.  Not bad, bad basic.  It has an aftertaste of distillation column.

It’s hard to imagine drinking more than a couple of these at a party (think of all the sugar!), but it’s not a bad thing to have in the fridge.  If I was designing a root beer alcoholic drink, I would take a “root beer cocktail” approach, like adding root beer extract to a martini.  But if you just want to buy a can of something, you could do worse.

    Somehow that sounds less than appealing but i don’t like hard apple cider either..

    So, Root beer should be left as root beer and not alcoholize it.

    Wow, I love this drink! The only sad part is, it is only sold as a single, too expensive, wish it was sold as a six or 12 pack!
    I only bought it as a tester, I like testing new drinks out, and I am not usually a big rootbeer fan, but this was just so good, I will be buying again as a treat.
