This year I will be diving into delicious Mocktail blends to add to your favorite collection of tasty beverages. Our Root Beer Syrup Base provides the perfect twist to a classic Dark and Stormy Cocktail. 

Our herbal Root Beer Syrup Base has all the herbs you need to make your very own root beer, just add the sweetener! Classic root beer herbs like Sassafras, Birch, Sarsaparilla and Vanilla are combined to create the tastiest, no-guilt root beer that you can make yourself. Not only does our root beer herbal blend create the perfect base to make your favorite yummy soda, it includes carminative and bitter herbs that aid in digestion and detoxification.  All you need is to add some sweetness to balance out these robust root beer flavors!
