Adult Whipped Cream Root Beer Slush ~ Only 2 ingredients! Intended for 21 and older.

This post is coming a little later in the day than I wanted it to be but this post will be quick and the recipe outcome is easy and delicious! You may have seen all the rage in the last few years with whipped cream vodka. There is everything from cotton candy vodka to pumpkin pie vodka. I’ve tried a few but my favorite has to be whipped cream vodka. This drink is perfect for parties or a night in. Mix it up and use a coca-cola or Dr. Pepper!

So how do you make a Whipped Cream Root Beer Slush? Simply take a glass and fill with:

  • crushed ice
  • 2 tablespoons of vodka
  • fill the glass with root beer


If you are looking for a kid friendly version, try adding a splash of vanilla to a glass filled with only root beer.
