Rosemary's Root Beer Tonic

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetarian, Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 3 oz Sassafras Bark, dried
  • 2 oz Sarsaparilla, dried
  • 1 oz Dandelion Root, dried
  • 1 oz Burdock Root, dried
  • 1/2 oz Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 oz Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 oz Orange Peel, dried


This sweet, bracing drink from Rosemary Gladstar Slick is reminiscent of
old-fashioned root beer, due to the sassafras. It has a cleansing,
revivifying effect from the dandelion, burdock and sarsaparilla.

Mix together all ingredients and store in a tightly closed container. In a
large pot combine 1 quart of water and 4 tablespoons of dry mixture. Bring
to a boil, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain and sweeten with
honey or stevia (also called "sweet herb") if desired.

Makes about 4 cups

Variation: For iced tea, chill the simmered mixture, then dilute it with 1
quart of sparkling water. Serve over ice with a twist of orange peel.
