Homemade Root Beer
July 28, 2008

This was a big hit at our 4th of July party. Kids and adults alike could not get enough. We made 4 gallons using about 1.75 bottles (2 oz.) of McCormick root beer extract, 6-2 liter bottles of club soda for half of the sugar we used dark brown sugar. It had a very rich, yummy flavor. We also used 10 pounds of dry ice, started off with 5 and it all melted away in an hour. Got 5 more and it stayed icy until the last drop was drained. Made it in one of those gatorade 6 gallon beverage coolers. Excellent!
