Sarsasparilla

Hard to find Sarsasprilla soda around here anymore. Once in awhile I like to drink it instead of the same old soda .

I LOVE Sars, when I was a kid, my dad use to made up a drink called Double Sars, Sars cordial in a glass then top up with Sars soda with ice, we thought we were in heaven, my parents had their drinks, us kids had our double Sars, we did the same with lemon squash, with a lemon slice added to it, mum had her Gin Squash, we had our double lemon squash, very nice.

Look here for a brief Wikipedia explanation.

Buck and I really like it and used to buy it at a big beverage distributor when we went to Allentown, PA to visit his mother.

The best way to describe the taste is that it's a bit like birch beer or root beer. Yummy, almost creamy-like taste.

We haven't had it for years. Just forgot about it. Now I might have to see if there's a source for it here.

You know, I always thought it was an acoholic beverage, like a mimosa or something.
Sasperilla, is how it sounds, right? Or is that different?

Same thing, Stacy. Some folks say/spell it differently. Just like in the old cowboy movies when the guy sashays up to the bar and orders a "sasparilla."

If it taste like beer, it isn't touching these lips. LOL Never cared for beer, unless we were playing quarters.

No, no, dear. Not beer. ROOT beer or BIRCH beer, both soft drinks.
