Root Beer Whiskey flip with an egg! A twist on a classic whiskey flip cocktail.
One of our daily activities as food bloggers is to look for new and fun ingredients that might make for some good blog posts. Recently we were checking out different whiskeys when we ran across Uncle Bob’s Root Beer Flavored Whiskey. The combination of whiskey and root beer sounded like a great combination, and when we contacted Uncle Bob’s Whiskey, they offered to send us a bottle to let us review and share our experience with our readers.
We were admittedly excited, as root beer and whiskey are two of our favorite flavors, so getting a chance to combine the two sounded like a can’t miss proposition. When we received our bottle we both had to sneak a sip right away and when we got the classic smell and taste of root beer, we really got excited about the possibilities!

Uncle Bob’s is a flavored whiskey distilled and bottled in Mira Loma, California by Founders 49 Distilling and Whiskey House. Made by blending barrel aged whiskey with natural root beer flavors, Uncle Bob’s Root Beer Whiskey is a flavored whiskey in the same vein as the much more famous Fireball or Seagram’s Cherry.
The folks at Founder 49 did an excellent job of balancing the inherent sweetness of root beer and the bite of the whiskey into a nice combination that almost could be considered a root beer liqueur.
What Ingredients are Needed in the Root Beer Whiskey Flip?
- Heavy Cream
- Powdered Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Root Beer Whiskey
Sweet with a nice boozy warmth from the whiskey, Uncle Bob’s tastes like an old fashioned root beer, rich with notes of vanilla and caramel sweetness that is cut with a hint of bitterness from the sarsaparilla and birch bark. Unlike a lot of flavored whiskeys which can be unbalanced and overly sweet, Uncle Bob’s Root Beer Whiskey hits the mark on the balance between sweetness and booziness and delivers a classic root beer flavor that will appeal to lots of folks who are looking for something new to try.
Sometimes these flavored whiskeys are targeted at folks who are more interested in shots or wanting a sweet drink that will hide the alcohol, and while Uncle Bob’s would hit that target perfectly, we wanted to show a different side of Uncle Bob’s that shows it could be used in a cocktail that is in a more serious vein.
We came up with this twist on a classic whiskey flip that takes the Uncle Bob’s Root Beer Whiskey and blends it into a drink that has hints of a classic root beer float and a classic creamy whiskey flip. If you want a winter flip, might we suggest our Holiday Ginger Flip?
