Homemade Root Beer

The other day I got the hankerin' for some root beer. So, I just said hankerin'. I felt it was appropriate to use the word hankerin' since the hankerin' was for root beer.

That was like four hankerin's. That is a lot of pretending to be a cowgirl that just happened.

I just couldn't help myself. I blame the root beer.

This homemade root beer is so yummy. You may be questioning the need to make homemade root beer when it is so easy to pick up a 2 liter at the grocery store.

Well, first, how cool is it to say you made your own root beer. It is pretty cool. Now I know, because now I can say I have made my own root beer. I do feel pretty cool.

Second, it is insanely easy and tastes so very yummy.

My Little Men thought it was pretty awesome that we made our own root beer. They happily sucked every drop of it down. The Hubs was pretty sad he was at work when the root beer making occurred. I assured him that it was so easy we could whip him up some when he got home.

I feel a new obsession coming on. Homemade soda.

Give it a try. You just might find the whole process kind of amazing.

Homemade Root Beer

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon root beer extract (I use McCormick's brand)
4 1/2 cups of club soda (about 1 liter), chilled

Chill the club soda. Measure boiling water. Add the sugar into the water. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Add in the root beer extract. Mix. Refrigerate to cool it down, and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

Combine the chilled club soda with the root beer mixture. Stir to mix. 

Serve immediately.

I hope you and your family enjoy making Homemade Root Beer as much as we did.

Which we did, quite a lot. Especially this one.
