Once upon a time, former schoolteacher Emily Butters decided to can some fruit. Her fiancé, Forrest Butler, asked if he could use the leftover juices for a syrup experiment. Fast-forward 40 or so experimental batches later, and Royal Rose Syrups was born. Today, all six handmade flavors of this Brooklyn company’s simple syrup are favorites of bartenders worth their margarita salt.
Handcrafted liquid syrups like these ennoble amateur mixologists and professional cocktail artisans alike. Royal Rose uses only best-quality, organic, whole ingredients, in addition to 100% organic fair trade cane sugar, in crafting each and every small batch.
Aside from the individual attention given to each and every batch, Royal Rose never uses chemical preservatives, added colors, or artificial flavors of any kind.
With flavors like 3 Chile and Cardamom Clove, Royal’s Rose’s simple syrups are anything but. They work just as well in chilled ice teas as they do in cocktails.
