Tamarind syrup is provides a bright, savory and acidic element to cocktails with a flavor like nothing else.
Handcrafted cocktail syrups from Los Angeles bartender Ken Arbuckle. St. Vincent Syrups provides several advantages for both professional and home bartenders:
1. Consistency: The flavor profile provided by using St. Vincent Syrups is always the same, allowing your bar to create consistent cocktails without variations based on fruit ripeness.
2. Speed: Using syrups allows for greater speed of service, by eliminating the need for muddling and straining out solids/seeds. It also allows the bartender to batch cocktails for large format service, or to reduce pour times during regular service.
3. Flavor: The use of an ingredient like orgeat is a great way to get a flavor profile on a cocktail that is not achievable any other way. Muddling almonds doesn't really work.
4. Price: With all ingredient and production costs considered, these advantages come with the added benefit of a lowered pour cost vs. in-house production.
