Dirty Root Beer~Secret Recipe Club Reveal

The Secret Recipe Club is a great group of bloggers who like a challenge.  The challenge is this:  each month we are given an assignment to find a recipe in a specific blog, make it, and write about it.  This month, I was give the blog Burnt Apple.  The recipes there are so much fun!   Traci writes that she feeds three children and a husband, all with special dietary conditions, and has a special BURNT section on her blog.  I love it.

When I was looking through, I had a plan in mind, I was looking for a cheesecake because that is what I needed to make for my PEO Book Club that was coming up.  No cheesecakes to be found, but I did find this Skillet Brownie and these Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Waffles that my son-in-law would love!  But when I found this recipe for Dirty Root Beer, I knew I had a winner.

Some of you know or might remember, that I was a carhop at an A & W Root Beer stand in my home town.  This was my high school job and I really loved it!

So never having heard of Dirty Root Beer before, I had to look it up.  Evidently it is root beer with a shot of tequila.  Yikes!   So now I had to try two drinks!  First up, the Dirty Root Beer.

Next, the Nonalcoholic Dirty Root Beer.  I have to admit, this is more to my liking.  Who doesn't love root beer and ice cream?  The additional vanilla is awesome, too.  Really smooths out the root beer, even A & W.

  4. Root beer floats were always a special treat when I was growing up. Now I want one again. Happy Reveal Day!

  5. You could use vanilla vodka =)

    1. Karen. You stopped me dead in my tracks. FABULOUS idea.

  6. We love a good root beer float in our house! It's been a while since I've made one, now you've got me craving one. I'm also intrigued about other dirty root beer, I love the vanilla vodka suggestion by Karen!

  7. I love that first photo! Sounds delicious!

  8. And now I'm craving a root beer float. Will have to try the 'dirty root beer' idea using some of my new homemade vanilla extract which I just started using some vodka. Does that qualify as Vanilla vodka?

  9. Brings back the good old days. Delicious!
