Root Beer Float Martini


Happy Thursday Slow Roasters!  IT'S LADIES NIGHT and have we got a special cocktail for our party tonight!  

Chad and I have had the chance to try many spirits and take every opportunity to broaden our horizons (palettes) and bring you new cocktails.  After stumbling upon a fantastic deal on root beer vodka, we headed home very excited to make a root beer float martini.  Let's just say neither of us were fans of the martini, but we became determined to make one that would live up to our expectations.

Well at long last we have the PERFECT Root Beer Float Martini and you are going to love it!  Made with infused vodka, cream and the additional of caramel vodka really makes this creamy and delightful.

Enjoy and have a fantastic Ladies Night! 

Don't forget to check us out on Facebook - we have a virtual Ladies Night party every Thursday.  Come and link up your favorite cocktail or dish!  Fabulous cocktails, fantastic food and amazing company.  It is THE place to be on Thursdays!

This luscious Lemon Cream Pie Martini is the perfect summer cocktail. Just like the dessert it is lip smacking good, tart, sweet & creamy!

Infused candy corn vodka is the main ingredient in this amazing Candy Corn Martini. Tastes like Halloween in a glass!

Strawberry Shortcake Martini; a perfectly sweet strawberry cocktail, followed by a rich cake flavor and a fabulous creamy end note.

Technically this is not a martini, but it is so good.  The Peanut Butter Cup Delight Cocktail is like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in a glass. Ladies night or any night it is perfectly divine.
