Granted, this may seem like a strange post. But over the weekend Melinda and I got to talking about root beer and how it was impossible to find in France. In fact, when a teenage neighbor in Nantes for whom we provided English lessons was planning a visit to Washington DC with her school last year we insisted she try root beer. She posted to her Facebook page that she had done just that, but didn’t sound too enthused.
Anyway, Melinda and I like an occasional root beer but really want it to be a good one. We also enjoy an occasional cocktail. Combining those enjoyments turned up this liqueur, Root. Mixed with a ginger beer and poured over ice and you have a fine sunny afternoon drink.
