I went to the Library this week and borrowed this book: More Top Secret
Recipes by Todd Wilbur…I’m going to type as many of the recipes as time
permits before having to return it. Take care and have a great weekend!!!

1. Dissolve the sugar in the hot water. 2. Add the root beer concentrate
and let cool. 3. Combine the root beer mixture with the cold seltzer water,
drink immediately, or store in fridge in tightly covered container.

The root beer you’ll make here is a simplified version of Roy Allen’s
method from the early 1900’s. Instead of harvesting roots, herbs, and
berries, you have the luxury of using a root beer concentrate that can be
found in most grocery stores. In 1922 Allen expanded his business, he
formed a partnership with entrepreneur Frank Wright. This led to the name
that would become famous, A&W, the country’s best-selling root beer.
