Pure, intense, and flavorful—homemade cocktails are best straight from the source. Start in your garden or local market and create an in-season, made-from-scratch cocktail to lift your spirits and impress your guests.

—Herbal syrups including Thai Basil Syrup, Mint Syrup, and Lavender Syrup

—Spice syrups, featuring Cinnamon Syrup, Ginger Syrup, and Orange Cardamom Syrup

—Fruit/vegetable syrups such as Rhubarb Syrup, Pear Syrup, and Celery Syrup

Make your own bar basics:

—Fresh Citrus Cordials like the Ruby Red Grapefruit-Lemongrass Cordial

—Classic garnishes, including real Cocktail Cherries and Cocktail Onions

—Classic mixers like Grenadine, Ginger Beer Concentrate, and Bloody Mary Mix

Make your own infusions:

—Base spirits including Cucumber, Lemon & Dill Gin and Jalapeño-Cilantro Vodka
