Two Philadelphia institutions, The American Pub and Hank’s Gourmet Beverages, have partnered up to give lovers of that cooling favorite, the Root Beer Float, a serious, adults-only, year-round alternative.
Pub owner Jerry Connor and the mixologists at this City Hall-adjacent watering hole favored by politicos and business movers and shakers have employed Hank’s critically-acclaimed Root Beer as the basis for a new signature cocktail, they have dubbed The Hank’s Root Beer Floatini.
The libation marries Hank’s Gourmet Root Beer, vanilla vodka, Bailey’s Irish Crème and a hearty dollop of Hank’s Root Beer Float Drizzle, which is, quite literally, a delectable secret sauce from the beloved craft soft drink. The end result?
“It’s something that combines the sweetness and texture of a classic Root Beer float with the potent, mature joys of the classic martini,” says John Salvatore, CEO of Hank’s Gourmet Beverages, which makes this critically-acclaimed craft soft drink and seven other flavors.
