Nickel Dime Cocktail Syrups
Gift Sets are a wonderful way to introduce consumers to advanced syrups and mixers. In fact it does all of the hard work for you on the shelf! We see this strategy work with bitters sets all the time!
NickelDime Cocktail Syrups are a hot commodity online. And fit the mold of what several distributors who specialize in cocktail culture have told me are their best sellers which happen to be in the advanced mixer category.
NickelDime syrups come with a slew of recipes for easy to make Craft Cocktails at home.
In addition these advanced syrups can also be used in stirred cocktails to jazz up any that call for a sweet modifier and bitters. Good examples are Old Fashioneds The Cherry Bomb works with Bourbon or Rye and Caged Heat work with Tequila, Rum or Bourbon. Fairy Dust is a substitute for Absinthe in many ways. It can be used with any recipe calling for an absinthe wash. I make a Gin Old Fashioned with a tsp of Fairy Dust and 2-3 dashes of Orange Bitters that’s sensational.
The founders of Nickel Dime Cocktail Syrups.
Jared Hirsch is a Mixologist, Bar Manager at Oakland’s Sidebar. He has won multiple awards for his drinks, syrups and bar program, including the Four Roses National Cocktail Challenge at Tales of the Cocktail, Jameson’s Movember competition, and was a finalist in Belvedere’s National Project (Red) competition in New York.
Absinthia Vermut is an entrepreneur with a passion for making things that help others make better cocktails. Her first taste of absinthe was in 1996. She served her first bootleg bottles to friends a few months later on April Fool’s Day 1997, where she received the nickname, Absinthia. She continued making absinthe until suddenly one day, March 5, 2007 to be exact, the ban on absinthe was lifted. Never expecting absinthe to be legal in her lifetime, she knew she wanted to produce an organic absinthe.
In 2013, she legally changed her name to Absinthia (Vermut is on her birth certificate), trademarked it, and founded Absinthia’s Bottled Spirits, LLC in order to bring her organic absinthe to market. Finally able to sell her absinthe legally in September 2017, Absinthia™ Organic Absinthe Superieure began to appear in bars, restaurants, and bottle shops and won its first gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018. Six awards and one year later, Absinthia Organic Absinthe is currently available in California, New York, and Louisiana. Absinthia is a member of the Women’s Cocktail Collective.
SOBAR is a revolutionary concept in Protein Bars.
“The SOBAR is a great choice for your protein bar due to its unique balance of high protein quality and enrichment, fantastic taste, and a lower glycemic mix of sugars.”
CONTAINING BOTH A PREBIOTIC AND ALCO-HOLD…
YOU WILL HAVE TO GIVE THEM A TRY!
For many, “The Most Important Hour of the Day”!
I have never worked with a food scientist before but I have to tell you it confirms all of my skepticism about the food & supplement biz. That said Eleni and I have done hundreds of seminars related to good food and drink. From that experience and the time spent hand-selling Wine, Spirits & Craft Beer, I can tell you for a fact that most consumers should eat a SOBAR prior to Cocktail Hour…
Nobody knows what a protein bar actually is…
at least until Joe came along!
Yes, you did read that correctly! The FDA has not established the specific attributes of what defines a “protein bar” and any “bar” with any amount of protein can be labeled as a “protein bar” as long as its protein content is specified properly in the Nutrition Facts on its wrapper.
This fact, along with the current popularity of protein supplementation, has led to an abundance of “protein bars” and related products with a huge range of protein enrichment. Furthermore, some of these “protein bars” are loaded with sugar and fat and are not the most nutritionally sound snacks.
