HANDCRAFTED COCKTAIL SYRUP
A sugar and honey base syrup* is infused with mostly locally sourced ingredients (rose geranium plants are organically grown in Christo's own garden), to create the current selection of seven flavours:
Rose Geranium (the flagship)
Rosemary Cinnamon Rooibos
Lime and Toasted Spices
Red Fig (seasonal)
Elderflower & Elderberry (limited stock available during December, January & February)
Pomegranate & Toasted Spices (seasonal)
*does not contain alcohol
* four times less sugar than tonic water - mix the syrup with soda water for sophisticated flavour, with less sugar.
Let your creativity run wild and use as a mixer with your favourite gin, rum or even wine. Add soda , lime, mint or fresh fruit and enjoy a tantalising cocktail that will awaken your senses.
OR enjoy as a refreshing mocktail without the alcohol.
where the magic happens
Blue Bee's handcrafted cocktail syrup range is lovingly created in a small workshop in the peaceful coastal town of Kleinmond in the Western Cape.
Here, the boss bee himself and his worker bees cook, bottle and label every bottle of the sweet stuff by hand.
