Sweet Cocktail Syrups

Our Crush this month: the sweet side of cocktails.



The art of mixology lies in balancing the bitter and sweet, but if you’ve been to a bar in the last five years (we suspect you have), you no doubt recognize that bitter is dominating. Cynar concoctions are commonplace, Campari negronis are on tap and you need Excel to track all the new artisanal bitter brands and flavors coming out of Brooklyn alone. We love the trend, but in this bitter revolution the sweet side of cocktails has been left behind.

That’s why our Crush this month is Blue J Syrups’s fruit, flower and herb sweeteners, which are deliciously closing the bitter-sweet gap. With flavors like Spiced Pear, Mango Hibiscus and Lime & Sage, these pretty pours bring sophistication, subtlety and a dose of—gasp—fun back to the bar. Best part: On each label, there’s a cocktail and sno-cone recipe. Tasty fun for the whole family? We’re very sweet on that.
