It's so simple to create a delicious soda. 1 oz. is the perfect amount to be combined with fresh citrus juice
( a whole lemon or lime) and topped off with soda water. Yes that's it and voila you have a signature drink in your hands in seconds.And if you are feeling fancy, you can add in one of our aromatic garnishes (usually dehydrated) to add a pop of color. And because our syrups are good for a month in the fridge, a little goes a long way. They are also perfect for entertaining and parties so you have an easy mixer to use on hand.
And did we mention our Artisan Syrup contains no nasty additives or preservatives. Our libations are plant based, spice-forward and thoughtfully crafted in our upstate Mixology Lab produced and bottled right here in the Hudson Valley. So you can feel good knowing you are buying and supporting a local family owned and operated business.

Our goal is to inspire as many people to open their minds, mouth and palate to new flavors and spices and live. conscious life in balance, so we are sharing one of our winter favorite recipes where you add the syrup to tea, so read on below so you can try it out for yourself.
Introducing the Jazzy Raspberry Tea
This Jazz with Raspberry Tea is using one of our three Artisan Syrup flavors, the Hibiscus +Rose Petal Syrup. Made with the hibiscus flower, which contains high levels of vitamin C. The soothing rose petals have anti-inflammatory properties which help boost your immune system and protect you from catching the flu or a cold, a bonus during this season! Also, as it’s non-alcoholic, we often make these for our little ones to enjoy a sophisticated Artisan Soda. Its a great way to incorporate spices into their diet which my wife Nandini Austin is passionate about, as in Ayurveda for thousands of years spices have been known for to aid digestion and possess so many health benefits.

1 oz Hibiscus – Rose Petal Syrup
1 Raspberry Herbal Tea Bag
Steep the tea bag for 5 minutes in boiling water. Remove the bag. Add the Rose Petal Syrup. Stir well.

Where to buy our Syrups.
I have committed to not drinking for just over a year now. It just did not suit my lifestyle and have no plans of ever returning. I believe in discipline and moving forward in my own life and while I do this, inspiring others in their own lives to make those commitments and stick to them.
I never thought that I could achieve these types of goals of sobriety while still in the drinking game. With that said, The Cocktail Architect Syrups can be used for cocktails and non-alcoholic cocktails. We serve up Non-Alcoholic recipes to create one of a kind drinks for the new year and beyond.
