We had an epic girl's night yesterday!
After our last smashingly successful girl's night out, playing pool, foos ball, and air hockey (see video above), we decided to mix things up a bit and go native.
We live in Fairfield, California, just a stone's throw away from Napa, and in the heart of Wine Country. But, being Mormon and all, we actually don't drink alcohol. So, while we enjoy the beauty all around us, "Wine Country" isn't so exciting as it would be for some.
It was a bit spur of the moment, but we managed to gather up ten different types of root beer to sample. Between riotous laughter (nearly having root beef shoot out my nose many times because they'd always choose the exact moment after I'd taken a drink to say the funniest things!), delicious mint brownies (which may or may not have influenced the flavor of the root beer lol) and girl talk, we did manage to chat about about the different flavors, textures. Tawyna even taught us a bit about the history of root beer (of which I was clueless).
We had a blast! It was so much fun to get out of the house and take a break from the stress of every day life. These ladies are so great. I always feel so much better after a visit with them.
And since you can't have this much root beer around without ice cream, we had two different types of vanilla on hand for root beer floats. We even did a tasting of different root beer/vanilla combinations.
We decided that River City Root Beer or Frosty Root Beer for floats (vanilla bean ice cream is best), and Rebecca says, "Dad's Old Fashioned Root Beer or Sioux City Root Beer for a less sugary food pairing." For just a plain root beer, River City Root Beer won this round. Next time, we'll bring in my favorite: Henry Weinhard's Root Beer.
