shrubs & syrups
Complex and delicious, Bar & Garden's shrubs and syrups create outstanding cocktails with nuance and depth. Our small-batch seasonal shrubs are concentrates made of fruits, vegetables and/or herbs distilled to their essence with apple cider vinegar and a touch of cane sugar. Non-alcoholic, just half an ounce adds potent flavor to cocktails, mocktails, dressings or whatever you’re stir-frying or marinating for dinner! We feature several shrubs made in Texas.
Similarly, the beauty of our syrups comes down to purity and craft. For instance, most Grenadines are loaded with artificial colors and flavors, high fructose corn syrup, and other preservatives like citric acid. We carry an all-natural grenadine made from ripe, cold-pressed pomegranates, cane sugar and orange flower water. Our Almond Orgeat Syrup by Liber & Co. out of Austin, Texas, is made with finely ground roasted almonds. Their Spiced Demerara, a savory combination of toasted peppercorns, baking spices and herbs, adds the perfect kick to all cocktails, particularly an old fashion or sazerac. We also offer the essential syrup for tropical-inspired cocktails: Pineapple Gum Syrup. Its fresh fruit flavors pair well with aged rum, mezcal or aromatic pisco.
