Flavoring Alcoholic Beverages

Flavoring alcoholic beverages is very exciting and our professional based bar service flavors and syrups can allow a bartender to offer a huge range of flavors while employing just a few premium spirits such as vodka and rum.  Bar tenders already using our system use bottles with squirt caps to dispense a prescribed amount of flavor or syrup in a drink – usually three drops of flavor per drink.  They can also “blend” basic flavors to achieve more complex flavors with a blending chart we provide.
You do not need to buy professional based flavors to have some fun.  We created recipes in this blog around the novelty drinks “Candy Cane” “Red Hots” and “Skittles” to name a few with materials you should be able to secure locally. 
You can flavor vodka, rum, and even moonshine with candy flavors or dessert flavors.  Candy flavored shots would be just basically vodka and a candy flavored syrup such as cherry, lime, mojito, raspberry, or even strawberry.  Typically the “tang” in Skittles or Jolly Ranchers, for example, is actually from citric acid and that is a component of our bar service syrups and flavors.
Our system offers every flavor a bartender could think of:
Anise, Amaretto, Cantaloupe, Cherry, Chocolate, Coconut, Cotton Candy, Espresso, Lemon, Lime, Mango, Marshmallow, Mojito, Peach, Passion Fruit, Strawberry, Vanilla to name just a few. 
This is the fun part!  You can dip rims in shredded coconut, crushed candy canes, edible flower petals, sugars – such as brown sugar, or even salt (as in Margaritta).
