Two Sundays ago, we paid a visit to Backbar in Somerville where bartenders Sam Treadway and Bryn Tattan were behind the stick. For a start, Sam recommended a Tiki number they created called the Roots of Rum that featured Art in the Age's Root Liqueur. Root beer flavors have occasionally appeared in classic Tiki recipes such as Don the Beachcomber's 1937 Caribbean Punch, and Root Liqueur has appeared in a handful of modern ones such as Prince Farrington Punch and the Root of All Evil.
