A New Years' Tipple

My drinking habits have changed somewhat over the years. When I was around ten I was rather fond of an ice-cream soda (which mixed coke and ice-cream together: two of my favourite drinks). When I was in my late teens, I discovered vodka and in my early twenties I discovered a Black Russian cocktail which still remains one of my favourite tipples.

Now in my early thirties (shush, 34 is still early) I'm not a big drinker, but one or two quality drinks is all that will be needed this New Year's Eve.

So I'm going to have a go at this rather fabulous cocktail (which combines my favourite drinks from the past) designed by RC Cola and Alistair Tatton: The RC Cocktail.


12.5mls Kahlua
37.5 mls cinnamon-infused vodka
150 mls RC Cola
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cherries
  1. Infused the vodka with cinnamon sticks by leaving the cinnamon in the vodka for a few days.
  2. Fill a tall glass with ice and add all the ingredients apart from the ice cream putting the RC Cola in last. Add the ice cream scoops at the top and garnish with the cinnamon sticks and cherries.

For a non-alcoholic version, omit the vodka and kahlua and add a pinch of cinnamon to the drink.

TheBoyandMe and RC Cola ask you to enjoy alcohol responsibly.

I was sent some RC Cola to sample for the purpose of this post.

    I used to love ice cream soda as a kid but we called it coke float! This cocktail sounds delicious but I'm craving a coke float now. Bet it doesn't taste as good now as it did in the 80's. @scattymumofboys

    Omit the vodka (you're kidding right?).
    Mrs Boy's Mummy you are a girl of my own heart.
    Ice cream soda (check) American cream soda even better
    Black Russian (check)
    I know you didn't mention it in this post, but I know you like:
    Baileys (check)
    I'm not a huge fan of coke (but that's another story) even if I spent my 20's drowning in it 😮

    Sounds like a very tasty recipe and so I might just ignore that the blacky/brown stuff us in it.
