The Tootsie Roll Cocktail: The beloved cocktail of the slutty pumpkin! Made with only 2 simple ingredients in just minutes! Even if you aren’t a fan of How I Met Your Mother, you will be a fan of this delicious cocktail!
This Tootsie Roll Cocktail combines Kahlua with root beer, creating a drink that tastes just like an alcoholic tootsie roll! It’s refreshing, tasty, and will curb any sweet tooth with just one glass!
The inspiration for this cocktail comes from my and my husband’s favorite TV show, How I Met Your Mother. However, the drink flavor keeps us coming back for refills even though the show is sadly over!
Even if you haven’t caught an episode of the popular sitcom, you won’t want to miss out on this cocktail! It’ll surely become a favorite after just one glass!
Mix up this Cocktail Recipe using just two ingredients! First, your favorite brand of root beer!
I love IBC Root Beer! It has a more traditional flavor yet is incredibly smooth thanks to the added vanilla. However, Barq’s, Mug, and even A&W would all go well in this cocktail as well.
The second ingredient is Kahlua, one of the most popular coffee liqueurs. If you’re not a fan of Kahlua you could swap it out for your preferred coffee liqueur.
How To Make A Tootsie Roll Cocktail
- Add ice to your rocks glass.
- Pour in the root beer and Kahlua.
- Stir together and enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Make These Drinks Ahead Of Time For Easier Party Prep?
I wouldn’t recommend it! The soda will lose its carbonation and the ice will melt resulting in a watered-down drink. These cocktails do come together super fast though so you won’t lose time with guests!
Is There A Non-Alcoholic Version To This Cocktail?
For a non-alcoholic Tootsie Roll Cocktail, you can swap the coffee liqueur out for espresso or non-alcoholic coffee syrup. Da Vinci Coffee Liqueur Gourmet Syrup would be a great choice for coffee syrup!
What’s A Rocks Glass?
A rocks glass is a glass used to serve drinks mostly made with spirits. It’s also commonly called a low ball glass. Feel free to serve this cocktail in any glass you’d like though, it tastes great regardless of the cup!
