“This is a fast, easy way to make homemade root beer. Rather than fermenting it yourself, you can take a shortcut using carbonated water (club soda).” - by Carla B.
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Mix the water and sugar together in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the root beer extract, and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
- Pour the root beer mixture into a 1-gallon pitcher or bottle, and slowly pour in the carbonated water. Refrigerate until cold; serve over ice.
