Make This Classic Americana Delight for the Fourth

After a hard half week’s work, you can always use a root beer float, and when there is weed involved, it’s no holds barred one of the tastiest ways to unwind. Root beer floats are a classic carbonated beverage—originally only from the natural fermentation process— that has been pleasing patrons since the late 1890s, but root beer is even older than that.

With its rich flavors that come from veritable piles of herbs—tossing some Bubba Kush into the mix as, Keef Cola has done, is a direct invitation to the gourmand. Nothing slaps after dinner like a dessert dosed with an indica like Bubba, and its sedative powers have made it a popular choice nationwide, so we can see why Keef would incorporate it into the slightly minty, root-tastic spiciness of a traditional root brew.

This Fourth of July, why not indulge in an Americana classic with a slightly more modern twist— like a Keef Cola spiked Root Beer Float? With a massive dollop of good quality French Vanilla ice cream, you’ll be singing the praises of this classic treat in a whole new way—it’s adorned with 10 milligrams of THC.

Here’s our recipe for the ultimate frosty brew-sans alcohol, but feel free to add 1.5 ounces of rum or vodka if you want to up the ante.

Keef Cola Root Beer Float

Makes two full sized 5mg desserts


1 bottle Keef Cola Root Beer with Bubba Kush

French Vanilla ice cream, as good quality as you can afford

1 can club soda, unflavored


Orange peel for garnish


Build your drink in a tall glass with plenty of ice, diluting the sweetness slightly is key to this desserts success.

Drop one to two scoops of vanilla ice cream on the top of your ice tower inside the glass.

Slowly drizzle about ¼ of the root beer over each of the icy frothy waiting columns.

Give a very gentle stir, then top with a bit of seltzer, add a reusable straw and twist the orange peel over the top.

Serve with the remaining root beer, to be poured on just before devouring.
