If you like whiskey and Coke, you’ll probably enjoy Johnnie Walker Black Label and Root Beer as well. Even if you’re not crazy about root beer – I’d still recommend giving this drink a shot – at least! The whiskey/root beer blend, in my opinion, is a perfect concoction; although, I know several people who simply don’t care for the nameless drink. Black and root beer is great during the Summer (root beer) and certainly appropriate for the Winter months(Black Label). A good Boston drink.
For obvious reasons, I’m not gonna follow Linda’s recipe format – so, let’s begin!
Start with your favorite rock glass (if during the Summer – try freezing glass beforehand) and fill with ice. Pour one part Johnnie Walker Black Label then one part root beer. That’s it! I prefer A&W Root Beer as I feel A&W has more carbonation/foam. If you like, feel free to stir after pouring; however, I don’t feel it’s necessary. Try experimenting with different root beers and whiskeys (maybe vanilla ice cream too?), but be sure to comment below! Hope you enjoy and please drink responsibly.
