Root Liqueur by Art in the Age
I normally test and try different libations. I’ve ventured out much more than I used to. I have to thank my husband. I used to only be a wine girl, but I find myself loving spirits more and more. I stumbled upon one of my new favorite liquers recently at a birthday party. It was a gift to the birthday boy, but once I tasted it I had to control myself from not confiscating his bottle. Root Liqueur has been created in the old-school fashion as a true alcohol distillery. It is made in small batches and trust me is worth finding if you can get your hands on a bottle. I tried it with cream soda for an adult root beer. But if you are really adventurous try my grown up root beer float.

I'm cold. Not just cold from the coming Fall, but from the drinks that seem to do little more than make me buzzed. I want to drink things that warm me up inside. This is not to say that warmth only comes from alcohol. Far from. What I want is creativity through the use of great ingredients. This warms me up inside!
As I like to experiment with new liquors to the market- I'm also interested in using liquors that are familiar to me in a new and interesting manner.
The first drink I call the Zombie Root Carousel. It's a creative little slurp that uses USDA Certified Organic Root- the alcoholic precursor to Root Beer is woven into this drink. It's a creative drink- quite interesting in a way not yet discovered by all. Only a few have discovered Root. That's what makes it very interesting!
