A & W Draft Root Beer is my current favorite. But I truly love sirop de cassis mixed in plain soda when I'm in Europe.

My favorite is gingerale, but I also like A&W rootbeer and all the pepsi products.

Here's a recipe for homemade gingerale :

2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 cups sliced ginger

bring to a boil, turn heat down to a simmer and reduce to a syrupy consitsency. strain.

mix 1 oz syrup to 7 oz soda water and garnish with a lime wedge.

then with the ginger pieces that you strained out of the syrup, you can dust them with sugar and place in a 225 F oven (can't remember how long, think it's like 2-3 hours) and then you'll also wind up with ginger candy.

Sprecher's Root Beer-Hands down, the BEST!!!!

Vernor's-the old recipe. I agree, the stuff now tastes different.

It's just another expression for soft drink, Chiliboy!

So, what's your favorite?

Make your own Cola

It's the real thing. Well, almost.

Simple syrup: 1 cup sugar + 1 cup water

1/2 cup seltzer or club soda
2 tablespoons simple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
pinch of cinnamon
baker's caramel (like Kitchen Bouquet) as required
ice cubes

Bring sugar and water to a boil, simmer, then cool. That is your simple syrup. In a glass tumbler, stir simple syrup, with vanilla, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Add club soda (carbonated spring water is fine too) then baker's caramel to produce the correct shade.

Blindfold someone and have fun.

Old Dominion Rootbeer brewed locally in northern VA. Hands down the best. Also fresca, both the old formula and the new. Hey ChiliBoy, you can't be a midwest native if you don't drink pop! :)

Dear Friends:

Now that I think of it, I have not tasted a soda pop for at least twenty five years!

I love water with two slices of lemon and two ice cubes. I might go as far out sometimes as a Perrier.

I guess that If can not water my garden with it, I don't drink it! :D

oh Papa, you make me feel guilty for not drinking more water! I prefer lime in my water instead of lemon, and I do like it chilled. My oldest son is a trumpet player and consumes vast quantities of water to keep his lips in shape...I need to learn from my young 'uns I guess.

Whatever carbonated caffeinated beverage I happen to be swilling at the moment is my favorite. Actually I just came home from Bread and Circus with a 4 pack of Reeds Extra Ginger Brew. I went there to buy malted barley to make Craig Ponsford's Beer Bread, but all they had was I guess regular barley. Anyone know what's the deal with malted barley. And has anyone mentioned Moxie?
