Homemade Root Beer/Root Beer Float

The time-honored concoction of sarsaparilla, ginger and other roots is captured in this intense concentrate that’s back for a limited time. Make your own glass of root beer :


Start by making a concentrated root beer syrup:

1-3/4 cups sugar

2-1/4 cups water

2 tbsp Watkins Root Beer Extract

Cooking 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 of the syrup into a glass. Add 5 fl. oz. 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.

Root Beer Float: Float a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a mug of root beer.

( If you want to lighten up on the calories, use frozen Cool-Whip instead of Ice Cream.....YUMMY!)

Root Beer Extract—LIMITED TIME!
