Wobbly Cow

Wobbly Cow

Ever had a root beer float? Hell yes! It’s a staple of summer, which is hopefully on its way. We’re in Ohio and the seasons have a mind of their own, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until it warms up or the ice cream stands re-open. Just make yourself a Wobbly Cow!

This builds on the old school “Brown Cow” with a little more cream, a healthy amount of bourbon (hence the name), and a fruit salad for garnish. Use the richest chocolate sauce you can find (or make your own) and enjoy the unjudging comfort of your sweatpants.

You Will Need:

  • Frozen Pint Glass
  • Dark chocolate sauce
  • 1 scoop high-quality vanilla ice cream
  • 1 scoop high-quality chocolate ice cream
  • 4 oz of cold and strong root beer or sarsaparilla
  • 2 oz Cleveland Whiskey Bourbon Finished with Black Cherry Wood
  • 1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Orange and Toschi cherries for garnish
