People have enjoyed foods and beverages made with botanicals for thousands of years. In modern times, pharmacy soda fountains were places you could go to drink botanical syrups mixed with carbonated water. Not only were they full of health-promoting herbs, roots, bark, and flowers, they tasted great. Maybe that’s why bartenders borrowed the botanical syrups used by pharmacy soda fountains to add to their repertoire of flavors. The sweetness of syrups balances the bitter and sour of cocktails. These syrups are made in small batches with 100% organic cane sugar paired with natural, sustainable, and fair trade produced ingredients, and Bull Run Basin water. Use RAFT Botanicals with soda water for a delicious natural soda with 50% less sugar per serving than most sodas or in your next cocktail. Pair with Bitters for a great gift.
