A Bottle of Roots....

So for Christmas, one of my favorite gifts was this treasure found by my husband David Brill. A bottle of Roots! A product of Art in the Age. this alcoholic delight contains anise, allspice, cardamon, cinnamon, spearmint, lemon, smoked black tea, wintergreen, clove, orange, nutmeg, sugar cane and birch bark. All those herbs, spices and tea give this beverage a Root Beer Flavor. Based on the Root Tea which was quite a popular Pennsylvania drink (still is with the old timers) and then transformed into the syrup to make Root Beer.
You can read the full story of Root here. David and I toasted the New Year with a shot of Root. It has a strong 80 proof flavor of Root Beer. Too strong for me to sip straight but mixed with gingerale.......now we're talkin'.

Sounds really good, especially mixed with gingerale.

Ok, that's it. I'm ordering some for special toasts. Heck, I'd order the ROOT just because of the back label with the great illustrations. In fact, I will display it backside out.

Love it and thanks so much for informing all of us herb lovers.
