August 6 marks National Root Beer Float Day and the only thing I love more than the dessert beverage is the idea of turning it into a boozy one.

Let's just say I know what I'll be drinking tonight.

Vanilla Bean-Infused Loft & Bear artisanal vodka


1 bottle Loft & Bear artisanal vodka

1-2 vanilla bean stalks


Infuse Loft & Bear artisanal vodka with a vanilla bean stalk for 1-3 hours (depends on volume of vodka to quantity of vanilla bean). Whole bottle to one stalk takes 2-3 hours. It helps to make tiny cuts in the vanilla bean stalk to speed up the infusion process.
