I would like to introduce you to Root 23!
Root 23 was created by two Moms, Barb and Leah. These Moms had vision to use all natural ingredients to create simple syrups packed with brilliant flavor combinations to make creative cocktails.
Root 23 sent us a few samples of their simple syrup mixers and I have to say I was in love with the packaging! It’s so elegant and the syrup colors were very vibrant. The labels on each bottle had cocktail recipes on the side. Each recipe featured a few alcohol mixing suggestions as well as a way to make a mocktail. This was going to be a fun little mixology experiment!
I invited Mona over and we had all of our ingredients ready to mix it up and sample!
Our simple syrup choices were, Pear Rosemary, Vanilla Ginger and Blueberry Mint. We tried each mixer as a cocktail and a mocktail. Mona was excited for the Vanilla Ginger and I was eyeing the Pear Rosemary. We got right to mixing and realized these natural syrups went along way when mixing and are full of flavor! I suggest starting with a little and adding more until the taste is to your liking.
After sampling the syrups several ways I had my favorite combos! I liked the Vanilla Ginger with Bourbon, Sprite and a splash of lemon juice. I have never like bourbon ever but this combo of ingredients made for a smooth cocktail. My second favorite was the Blueberry Mint with Vodka and Club Soda.
Root 23 brings you unique simple syrup flavors to have a creative twist with your Holiday Cocktails!
