Yusef Austin Co-Founder of The Cocktail Architect at Stoneridge Orchard.

We're so excited to announce our new line of Artisan Syrups - Sips Powered By Spice. Over years of honing our craft, making bespoke cocktails for every kind of event, and after all the beta testing from the many corporate cocktails classes we host ....we listened, we perfected, we enhanced, and now have three unique handcrafted artisan syrups (enhancers) and custom garnishes, ready to buy online and in person on Sundays, 10 -2 pm at StoneRidge Orchard, a historic orchard which has been working for 200 years and is on 108 acres of beautiful land. On Sunday 25th June to celebrate the launch we are hosting a special Pop up Event with Mocktail tasting and a Global Dance Fusion class led by Nandini Austin Certified Ayurveda Movement and Wellcare Coach at 10.00 am rain or shine. We look forward to seeing you there ( tix on Eventbrite here )


Each enhancer has its unique blend and characteristics that are designed with the elements of nature in mind. Every syrup is made with exotic spices and herbs, inspired by the flavors of Mauritius - a small paradise Island in the Indian Ocean. They are so versatile be used in cocktails, sodas, mocktails and even baking or frozen desserts.


Need some grounding? Then try our Cardamom + Star Anise enhancer with its earthy qualities and warming spices it is designed to give you a glow from the inside. For Summer, it elevates your average iced coffee. Serve with your favorite cold brew Coffee or Iced tea for a Summery spicy drink. In Winter, add some hot water and lemon juice for a Hot Toddy, minus the booze.

When the Summer heat is getting you hot and bothered, then Calm

down and Carry on this Summer with our Hibiscus + Rose Petal enhancer which has soothing and calming qualities. Hibiscus flowers have a cooling effect and Rose petals, have a purifying quality that reduces excess heat.

Looking for some stimulation? Then try our Lemongrass + Kaffir Lime Leaf enhancer which has a vibrant and energizing effect as both these South East Asian ingredients stimulate digestion. This zesty favorite, think fresh cut grass, and a Matcha feeling, will give you a zing that brings a sense of lightness to the body and freshness to the mind.

Our Artisan syrups (enhancers) are produced by hand and we use only quality ingredients, sourcing exotic spices and herbs for our syrups. No artificial flavors, sweeteners, coloring, GMOs, or nasty stuff.

Every bottle comes with a recipe card to get started and for inspiration.

The Cocktail Architect Syrups

375 ML (Servings per bottle 11-17) and has a shelf life of one month/

We also have beautiful garnishes to liven up your drink, de-hydrated lemon, limes, Mandarin oranges, and most recently, Dragon fruit.

We often make these drinks for our little ones to enjoy as a sophisticated soda or mocktail with less sugar than a regular fizzy drink. It's also a nice way to introduce spice into their diet which aids digestion. After all there nothing wrong with a little sugar in your life. It's the binding element and the catalyst to really taste and smell the spices and herbs. Our full bodied enhancers areso flavorful. So we know this is why they will stand out in relation to other syrups.

So why not try a bottle today and give your tastebuds a treat! Shop here
