Glass Bottle Indulgence

rootbeer 001

I shouldn’t brag about drinking pop or soda (a myriad of names for carbonated sugar water), but there is something to be said for a  drink like rootbeer.

My students hate it.  They liken it to medicine or vicks vap-o-rub.  I, however, love it.  I remember travelling great distances when I lived in Japan just to purchase rootbeer.  This case, all I had to do was leave the hair cutting place (and some of its lovely stylists) and go next door to the Bulk Barn–I know.  Who would have thought?

It certainly didn’t hurt that this version featured cane sugar and came in glass bottle.  I was looking for a little pick-me-up, and this bottle provided it.

 Additionally, there is certainly something luxurious and slightly decadent to drinking soda pop from a glass bottle.

Luxurious + Decadent + Today’s Perfect Moment

    All that’s missing is a hefty scoop of ice cream! I LOVED the way the root beer would crystallize on cold ice cream when I was younger.
