#163: So Into It
In my experience, men with thick, white mustaches know a thing or two about life. When they start telling you about love, how to cook mussels, or what you should be drinking, you listen.
One such man advised me to pick up The Root by Art in the Age out of Philadelphia at his wine and liquor shop off of Columbus Circle in Manhattan. As authentic as it gets, and particularly zippy, this tasty stock is something that any of us “adults” who have ever enjoyed a frosty mug of root beer can be stoked on. Coolest back story on this one, check out the story of The Root:
Here’s my take on The Root:
- 1 part The Root
- 1 part Fentiman’s Ginger Beer
- Topped off with Reed’s Premium Ginger Brew to taste (in my concoction, this is 2 parts Reed’s. I’m not very tough.)
Put a chunky slice of ginger in the bottom of the glass for garnish and pour the concoction over a couple of rocks. Summer sippin’.
I love this branding.
