I couldn’t find NYFRB locally but Steele’s Wine Cellar had a few bottles of Coney Island Brewery’s Hard Root Beer. I did not have the Hard Root Beer before but I decided to give that a try. My recipe is simple involving one serving of vanilla ice cream and one bottle of Hard Root Beer. I chilled one of my tall classes, added one scoop of vanilla ice cream, slowly poured the Hard Root Beer, then added a second scoop.
This is delicious and refreshing, especially with the a grilled chicken burger from Griggstown Farm covered with pickled onions from Suzy’s Wild Cooking. Both of those I buy at the Montgomery Friends Farmers’ Market.
