Rummy & Retro: A Grownup Root Beer Float

When our executive editor was pregnant with her first kid, root beer floats were her weakness. Sweet but not too sweet, creamy and never boring with that spicy sassafras flavor. Now that she’s got two kids, she wants her sweets spiked, so we turned the wholesome classic into a delicious post-bedtime treat. Mama likey!
