Sodas You May Not Be Entirely Aware Of: Earp’s Sarsaparilla

Sodas You May Not Be Entirely Aware Of: Earp’s Sarsaparilla

Right from the start, you know you are dealing with a serious soda when you choose Earp’s. This bottle is adorned with a haphazardly placed label that is clearly meant to intimidate cowards and the lawless. Earp himself stands with gun smoking, looking just over your right shoulder at the villain he has just ventilated. Thanks, Earp! That was a close one.

Going beyond the label, Earp’s Sarsaparilla is one of the best sodas available today. For your average soda gulper, this is a root beer. Sarsaparilla is made from the sarsaparilla vine, whereas root beer is made from the roots of the sassafras tree. The end taste is similar. There are certainly bad sarsaparillas and good sarsaparillas, however. Earp’s has a bite that lets you know it’s there, but ends with a nice foamy finish.

Choosing a nice steak or even some barbecue to pair with Earp’s would not be a mistake. Avoid drinking it with salads or fish. These favors would clash and leave you confused when the dust settles. Stick with beef or pork and everybody is bound to get along.

Earp’s proclaims, “After a hard day of gun fight’n, nothing beats a real Sarsaparilla.” You probably don’t need to go that far to enjoy an Earp’s Sarsaparilla.
