SpiritedLA Original Cocktail: The Kingston

…It’s time to start cheating on our new year’s resolutions, right?

I’ve been trying to make a really killer root beer float cocktail for awhile now, but I was stubbornly stuck on making it with bourbon. It wasn’t working out. This time, I tried making one with rum and the departure totally paid off.

The Kingston:

  • 2oz dark spiced rum
  • 3/4oz almond liqueur
  • 3 dashes of Scrappy’s cardamom bitters
  • One scoop of high quality Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream
  • Fill to the brim with premium root beer
  • Garnish with a vanilla bean (and throw in a paper straw if you’re feeling Pinterest-y)
