Homemade Root Beer Recipe

  • Author: Let's Mingle


This recipe is easy to make and delish! It’s perfect to serve up during spooky season in a cauldron with some dry ice or in individual glasses topped with whipped cream!



4 Quarts Water

2 Cups Sugar

23 Tbsp. Root Beer Extract

12 Pounds Dry Ice (In Pieces)


In a large pitcher, combine the water, sugar, and root beer extract together.

If using dry ice, carefully add in the pieces of dry ice and stir.

When serving, pour or ladle into individual glasses.

If using dry ice, do not add the ice to the glasses, or wait to drink it until the ice has melted. Also be careful not to ingest it or touch it with your skin!


The dry ice will add a slight carbonated feel, but if you want more of that “carbonated feel”, skip the dry ice and use carbonated water for the mix instead.

Add more or less root beer extract depending on your flavor preferences. Start with 2 tbsp. and  work your way up from there.

If you want to avoid using dry ice for this recipe, top your root beer with creamy whipped cream for a similar effect without the stress of handling dry ice.
