Make this delicious Homemade Root beer for your Halloween Party. This Homemade Root Beer Recipe with dry ice is easier than you might think!
HOMEMADE ROOT BEER
My kids love Homemade Root Beer! It is always a fun recipe to pull out for certain Holidays at our house. Those special occasions are made even more special when we make Homemade Root Beer. We usually make this at Halloween or for the Fourth of July!
It is super easy to make and isn’t as complicated as it may look. This recipe tends to scare some people because it requires the use of dry ice. But dry ice can be fun and easy to use if you know how to handle it properly. Dry ice is extremely cold and needs to be handled with a clean pair of gloves so that you don’t burn yourself while handling it.
Dry ice can be purchased at a lot of grocery stores. So be sure to ask around to see where it is available in your area. Be sure to store your dry ice in an insulated container. The thicker the insulation, the slower it will sublimate. Do not store dry ice in a completely airtight container or it may expand and cause the container to explode.
HOMEMADE ROOT BEER RECIPE
For best results make your Homemade Root Beer about an hour or so before serving!
HOMEMADE ROOT BEER
Make this delicious Homemade Root beer for your Halloween or Fourth of July party. This Homemade Root Beer Recipe with dry ice is easier than you might think!
- 6 cups white sugar
- 3 1/3 gallons cold water cold
- 1 2 oz bottle root beer extract
- 4 lbs dry ice
Dry ice can be dangerous to handle. Never let children handle dry ice without proper supervision and gloves. Handle the dry ice with gloves so it does not burn your skin.
In a large cooler, mix together the sugar and water, stirring to dissolve sugar completely. Stir in the root beer extract. Carefully place the dry ice into the cooler, and cover loosely with the lid. Do not secure the lid, as pressure may build up.
Let the mixture brew for about an hour before serving. Leftover root beer can be stored in one gallon milk jugs.
