1 1/2 c. water
3/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Root Beer Concentrate
1 bottle (1 liter) cold soda water, seltzer or club soda
Bring water to boil in medium saucepan. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add concentrate; stir until well mixed. Pour into a container and refrigerate until ready to serve.When ready to serve, pour reserved root beer mixture into a pitcher and slowly pour in the soda. Stir slightly to blend. Serve immediately! Yup, it is as easy as that. Now, for double the fun, turn it into Root Beer Floats!!!! I do recommend making it when you're ready to use it all, because it loses it's fizz pretty quickly. I ended up pouring the remainder of what we made back into the club soda bottle and twisting the cap tightly. It lasted until the next day like this. Scoop some vanilla (or whichever kind you like to use) ice cream into a glass. Slowly pour root beer over the ice cream...look at the size of that head! Pop in a straw, and go to town...beware of brain freeze! I also love the way little root beer ice crystals form around the edges of the ice cream and get that little crunch! I'm betting there is probably a way to do this a little more "naturally". Maybe sarsaparilla root or something like that? Has anybody ever made it from scratch-scratch? I would love to know how to do it! Doesn't this make you feel like eating a chili-cheese dog w/ fries, too? Must be the drive-in memories.
