“Gambler. Lawman. Soda Enthusiast.” I’m pretty sure that is the inscription on Wyatt Earp’s tombstone (full pun intended). It’s commonly known that when the shootout at OK Corral was going on Earp called for a time out, Zach Morris style, then he handed everyone involved a nice cold bottle of sarsaparilla, which they enjoyed until they returned to their bloodbath. No one really knows how he kept the soda cold, or where he had it stored, but everyone involved recalled that it was very thoughtful and it really hit the spot at that exact moment.
The Earp family has now aged a few generations, and have decided to bottle and sell their own sarsaparilla. Their wares are the smoothest sarsaparilla I have ever tasted. It has the creaminess of a root beer and not the quasi-harsh sharpness that one equates to this flavor of soda. The general sarsaparilla flavor is there, but it just doesn’t have the bite that I want. I did enjoy the soda, but it didn’t blow me away like a lot of sarsaparilla does. I feel like I’ve typed out that word far too many times now. Sarsaparilla.
