Syrup: Make sure not to leave the bark in too long or it will begin to take on a woodsy note.

Curated slightly - moved Peychaud's from the notes section into the ingredient section. Also, how much Sarsaparilla bark is needed to infuse into the syrup?

Peychaud's wasn't showing up in the ingredient section.
The bark is hard to judge. I used 1 ounce (weight) of bark per 2 cups of water and 1-1.5 cups of sugar. The bark itself is really sweat in general but not all bark is the same.
