Cooks Tavern

Two refreshing drinks are sold to visitors for $3 a glass in the Cook's Tavern bar-room:  Ginger Beer and Sarsaparilla.


Often made at home, Ginger Beer originated as a brewed (fermented) drink; Cook’s Tavern sells a non-alcoholic, carbonated version with a spicy kick, more suitable for adults.


Sarsaparilla is based on the popular 19th century tonic made from the root of a South American plant (Genus Smilax).  Commonly referred to as “root beer”, these tonics contained a variety of roots, such as ginger for tang, sassafras for flavour and sarsaparilla to make it foam.
