Cooking with Kaylie: Espresso Float

On my never ending quest to mix espresso into food you might not otherwise add it to, I decided that root beer floats could use a makeover. Enter the Espresso Float. Yeah, I went there!

Ingredients Espresso Float

  • Corn syrup (optional)
  • Chocolate sprinkles (optional)
  • A scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • Shot of espresso (I used Velton’s Twilight Blend)
  • 1-ounce of coffee flavored liqueur
  • Root beer


  • Dip rim of glass in corn syrup and then into a bowl of sprinkles.
  • Add your scoop of vanilla ice cream to the glass.
  • Pour the shot of espresso and the coffee liqueur over the ice cream.
  • Pour in the root beer, going slowly to prevent the drink from bubbling over.

The ingredients for the coated rim are optional, but I highly encourage you to try it. Seriously, it adds a special touch to the drink and is sure to impress.

Okay, now go enjoy that deliciously caffeinated ice cream beverage!
