What is Dirty Root Beer?
Dirty root beer is a drink made by combining root beer and stout beer. It is typically served in a glass with ice, and garnished with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. The root beer adds a sweet, carbonated flavor, while the stout adds a bitter, coffee-like taste. The combination of the two creates a unique flavor that is both sweet and savory.
Making Non Alcoholic Dirty Root Beer
Non alcoholic dirty root beer is another twist on the classic. Sold in many soda shops, the non alcoholic version takes root beer, vanilla ice cream and vanilla syrup.
Our family always gets excited for the weekend this time of year. We are big game time fans. Of course, we also get to cheer on our own little guy at his flag football game. He is totally stressing about his defensive game time strategies. He is hilarious to watch when he is super serious about his game. But it's fun to have our entire weekend be devoted to sports. We love making the kids this non alcoholic version as a treat for after a game.
All you need to make this recipe is some root beer, vanilla syrup and vanilla ice cream. So simple! You'll want to use 1 teaspoon of vanilla syrup, one scoop of ice cream and 8 ounces of root beer per drink.
Pour root beer into a cup. Pour vanilla syrup into cup (approximately one teaspoon but you can add more to taste), Stir with a stirrer stick until combined. Add scoop of ice cream if desired.

As a matter of fact, I just bought a bottle of vanilla Torani a few weeks ago, but I do not like the taste. Could any other flavor work? If not, what about vanilla extract?
Then, I rarely buy root beer. Last week, root beer was on sale and something told me to buy root beer!
I can't wait for your reply!
Hi for root beer vanilla really is the best flavor to use. You could try vanilla extract if you would like but would need to adjust the amount used. You could definetely buy root beer but I think homemade tastes much better!
