Default avoiding sassafras

I have been wanting to make root beer (or sarsaparilla, or birch
beer, or some similar thing), but I don't want to take a chance
with sassafras, which may be carcinogenic. Every recipe I have
seen for these things contains sassafras. Even sarsaparilla
extracts/essences usually turn out to be sassafras for some reason
that I don't comprehend. Does anyone here have a tried and true
recipe for making such a beverage (or for an extract to make one)
that doesn't contain sassafras? If so, I'd love to try it.

Thanks,

That's like asking how to make a steak without using meat.


Why? One would think sarsaparilla extract would at least contain
sarsaparilla. Ditto a drink called "sarsaparilla" must have
started out containing sarsaparilla. Most sarsaparilla extracts,
syrups, etc. don't contain any sarsaparilla and seem to be
sassafras-based. I actually have found ONE formula that avoids
sassafras, but I'd like to hear of something people have actually
made and liked.

I didn't know if what's the taste of root beer yet. But I do love drinking wine especially the rice wine
