Root Beer

Nothing goes together with summertime like root beer.  And given this summer, the colder the better.  The Nourished Kitchen blog published a recipe for homemade root beer, and in describing the history of the beverage, pointed to a delightful 1891 pamphlet for Hires’ Root Beer from the Szathmary Recipe Pamphlet digital collection from the Iowa Digital Library.  Check it out, and grab a cold one!
