Homemade Rootbeer


Start by making a concentrated root beer syrup:
1-3/4 cups/425 mL sugar
2-1/4 cups/560 mL water
2 tbsp/30 mL Root Beer Extract—Trial Mark Bottle

Directions Root Beer Syrup:

Combine sugar and water in small saucepan; heat and stir until mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature; add Root Beer Flavor and mix thoroughly. Place in well-sealed container and keep in refrigerator.

Root Beer: Place 1/3 cup/80 mL of the syrup into a glass. Add 5 fl. oz./150 mL of club soda or sparkling water. Fill glass with ice. Enjoy!

Note: This makes a light colored root beer. If desired, you can add liquid caramel color if available in your area.
