Royal Rose - Strawberry Fennel Syrup
Sweet strawberries mingle with aromatic fennel seed in this fabulous syrup. Use to make an out-of-this-world cocktail (pairs well with vodka, gin, rum, or just about anything), or mix with soda water for a refreshing and unique soda. Drizzle on ice cream, fresh fruit, plain yogurt, and much more.
"The story begins in our tiny Brooklyn kitchen during the hot summer of 2010. I was on summer break from my job as a public elementary school teacher, and decided to can some fresh local peaches that I’d picked up at the Park Slope Food Co-op. Forrest asked me if he could use the leftover syrup to make some cocktails. A former bartender and bar manager in Detroit and beyond, he’d been experimenting with different syrups for cocktails all summer. I jumped in and added some black pepper, basil, and vanilla bean. The syrup was a huge hit at the Bushwick bar Forrest worked at that night, and the rest is history.
"At Royal Rose, we have a passion for delicious cocktails. We believe that using the best-quality, whole ingredients in our syrups makes the difference between an ordinary drink and a superior cocktail. We hand-make every ounce of our syrup in small batches, using only whole ingredients, 100% organic and fair-trade sugar, and filtered water. We use only 100% organic, fair trade cane sugar made from evaporated cane juice. We make our syrups by hand, in small batches, using whole ingredients. All of our herbs and spices are organic and fairly traded. Royal Rose sends all of its products to an independent laboratory for analysis to ensure a consistent, high-quality product. We recycle our waste and re-use cardboard boxes. No chemical preservatives, added colors or artificial flavors, ever. We source our ingredients and packaging materials for the highest quality and the best price possible."
