What is simple syrup?
A thick, sweet liquid made of dissolved sugar in water. It has the same sweetness as granulated sugar, but is easier to mix into drinks. Many cocktail recipes call for simple syrup, and simple syrup tastes delicious in non-alcoholic beverages as well.
Why should I use simple syrup instead of regular sugar?
In simple syrup, the sugar is already dissolved, making it easy to mix into drinks. You won’t have to spend minutes stirring your drink to get rid of sugar crystals. This is especially helpful when adding to cold drinks such as iced tea, lemonade, and cocktails.
How do you get the flavor into the syrup?
Our flavors are infused into the syrup, meaning the sugar, water, and flavor are boiled together, much like brewing tea leaves, except that we use lavender flowers, fresh ginger, and cinnamon sticks.
How do I use simple syrup?
Simple syrup can be used in any drink to add sweetness and flavor. It is perfect for cocktails, lemonade, hot or cold teas, coffee, or mixed with seltzer water. It can also be poured over waffles, pancakes, ice cream, yogurt, or pudding. It can also be used to make baked goods such as scones, muffins, and cupcakes, or for added flavor in a smoothie. And if you come up with another great way to use Sorva™ Syrups, please contact us and let us know!
Is simple syrup the same thing as a cocktail mixer?
No – cocktail mixers are drink-specific (like Pina Colada mix) – simple syrups can be used to enhance a variety of drinks since they only add one single flavor.
Where did you get the name “Sorva?
Sorva means “to sip” in Portuguese. To sip a drink means to relax, kick back, and appreciate the pleasure of slowly enjoying a tasty drink. The Portuguese style is reflected in the bottle labels, which are based on historic Portuguese ceramic tile motifs.
What does “all natural” syrup mean?
“All natural” means there is nothing artificial in our syrups. The only ingredients are water, sugar, natural flavoring (from real cinnamon, lavender flowers, and ginger) and citric acid (a natural preservative). There are no artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors.
