I like to try new drink combinations and also use syrups in recipes. I recently was made aware of Sonoma Syrups which is handcrafted in small batches, the uniquely American syrups and extracts reflect the flavors and sensibility of the region. I was sent a few bottles to sample and they were No.60 Acai Blackberry Current Superfruit Syrup which is made with two of the most nutritious and powerful superfruits in the world! Açai is a high-energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree harvested in the rainforests of Brazil. Açaí tastes like a vibrant blend of berries and chocolate. Within their royal purple pigments is the simple magic that makes these berries nature’s perfect energy fruit. Açaí and Black Currant are packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids for a healthful culinary and beverage treat. No.4 Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup made with quality premium Madagascar Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla beans, ripened on the vine and carefully cured for Sonoma Syrups. Blended like a fine wine, complete with vanilla bean seeds, the classic vanilla flavors, and floral taste notes produce unsurpassed taste and aroma.
My Opinion: I have used the vanilla on French toast as a syrup that I mixed with maple syrup and it is an amazing flavor. The Acai Blackberry makes a great vinaigrette and so does the Apple Cider Infused Vinegar and have a nice flavor.
