My Dad's First Soda Pop

I can recall Dad telling me of the time when he tasted his first soda pop. It was in 1912, when he was four years old and growing up on the Alberta prairie.

He accompanied his father Ernest Leopold Bell and D. P. McDonald, a close friend of his father's and owner of the Mount Royal Ranch, to Cochrane to attend a horse auction. More ranchers joined them, and the men entered the local saloon to talk.

The old bartender asked whether the boy would have a root beer. The LARGE glass of fizzy dark-colored liquid took some time to drink, and young Billy could not understand why the men's drinks came in such TINY glasses!

Ever since I heard that family story I wondered what that root beer would have tasted like. Now, thanks to these old fashioned soft drink recipes, I know. It was delicious!
