I love root beer but it is always too sweet for me. (Ditto the iced Thai tea I have had here.)Thai tea flavor reminds me a little of root beer, so i thought to combine the two,which has the effect of lessening the sweetness of the root beer, and not needing any sweetness in the tea! It's a very refreshing drink and lacks the guilt that comes with ice cream! —LeBec Fin

My eating passions are Japanese, Indian, Mexican; with Italian and French following close behind. Turkish/Arabic/Mediterranean cuisines are my latest culinary fascination. My desert island ABCs are actually 4 Cs: citrus, cumin, cilantro, cardamom, and GARLIC! I am so excited by the level of sophistication that I see on Food52 and hope to contribute recipes that will inspire you like yours do me. I would like to ask a favor of all who do try a recipe of mine > Would you plse review it and tell me truthfully how it worked for you and/or how you think it would be better? I know many times we feel that we don't want to hurt someone's feelings, but. i really do want your honest feedback because it can only help me improve the recipe.Thanks so much.
