Root Beer Extract is made from the finest ingredients including vanilla beans and natural root beer extractives. Old fashioned homemade root beer was traditionally brewed from sassafras, a deciduous tree in North America. The characteristic sweet flavor which is also slightly minty and a touch bitter, comes from the tree's roots, hence its name. It is an excellent flavoring agent for making cakes, buttercream, cupcakes, frostings, cookies, ice cream as well as brownies. It also used to enhance the flavor of a variety of beverages. This wonderful extract from yesteryear is delicious when added to tea time treats such as cupcakes with Root Beer chocolate frosting, smooth caramel fudge and even spices up traditional offerings like pancakes and ice cream when combined with vanilla bean paste. Consider adding a touch of sweetness to savory dishes like pulled pork with Root Beer BBQ sauce or Root Beer & chipotle spicy chicken wings. Root Beer extract also elevates side dishes like baked beans or carrots to another level when combined with apple cider vinegar & BBQ sauce or cumin, thyme & cloves respectively. At the end of a hot, weary day, how about pouring an adult Root Beer float with whipped cream flavored vodka, a Root Beer flip with rye whiskey and liqueur or a shaken but not stirred Root Beer martini with vanilla ice cream.
