This year for Halloween all I wanted was homemade Rootbeer. I planned my menu weeks in advance and I was so excited when Halloween finally rolled around. I was shocked that this recipe could be so easy. I don't know why it took me so long to try it. It was absolutely amazing. Everything I imagined it would be.
6 cups sugar
3 gallons cold water
2 oz rootbeer extract
4 lbs dry ice
Combine sugar and cold water in a large container. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour rootbeer extract in sugar water and stir until well combined. Add 3 1/2 lbs dry ice. Cover with lid (leave a hole so pressure can release). Let sit for 1 hour. Stir occasionally- dry ice may stick to the bottom of the container. Add remaining dry ice right before serving.
