The Root Of It All

Unless you've been living under a rock, you have noticed that a great spirit made in Pennsylvania is gaining a lot of popularity. Art in the Age's  'ROOT' is an amazing beverage that tastes just like root beer because it uses the exact same recipe that was originally used to make Root Tea back in the 1800's (with the exception of sassafras root witch was banned by the FDA 50 years ago - haters). What's even better is that ROOT is 100% certified organic. Seriously there's nothing you can't love about this.

Since this it is happy hour we though we would share a wonderful drink recipe using ROOT seeing as there's a lot of time left between now and Pimm's Cup season.


1 part ROOT
1/4 part lemon
1.5 parts four roses bourbon
3/4 part heavy cream
3/4 part simple syrup 
1 egg white
Dash Angostura Bitters
3 parts Sassparilla Beer

Add all ingredients to a metal shaker (except for the Sassparilla Beer) and Dry shake until liquid is frothy, approximately 1-1.5 minutes.  Add ice.  Shake vigourously until liquid is thickened and frothy, about 2-2.5 minutes.  Strain into a chilled collins glass.  Pour Sassparilla Beer gently down the side of the glass.
