Our 7 favorite syrup uses that don't involve cocktails

If you've ever wondered if you could use our syrups in other ways, this article is for you! Here are some of our favorite ways to use four of our syrups for non-cocktail related purposes. From super simple to full listed recipes, everything down below is absolutely delicious. Enjoy!

❶ Ginger-cranberry sauce

This zesty spin on classic cranberry sauce gets a beautiful kick from real ginger. We think you'll agree, the pairing is a match made in holiday heaven! 

Yield: 8-12 servings


  • ¼ cup Fiery Ginger Syrup
  • 12 oz bag cranberries
  • ½ oz lemon juice
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, Fiery Ginger Syrup, and orange juice and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • Add the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop into orange juice, sugar, and Fiery Ginger Syrup mixture (about 10 minutes)
  • Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl
  • Ginger-Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools

❷ Ginger apple galette

This super versatile dessert is surprisingly simple and quick to put together, and is a real crowd pleaser. Full of holiday flavor, but not too sweet, it's a relatively guilt-free indulgence.


  • ¼ cup Fiery Ginger Syrup
  • 12" pie dough
  • 3 large honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into ¼" slices
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • large egg
  • 2 tbsp cubed butter


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine sliced apples with Fiery Ginger Syrup, brown sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, corn starch, cinnamon, and salt and mix to incorporate.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie dough into a 12" circle.
  • Arrange apple mixture evenly over the center of the pie dough, leaving ~1 ½" - 2" of dough around the outside of the apple mixture.
  • Fold the edges of the pie dough inward over the apple mixture all the way around.
  • Beat one large egg with a splash of whole milk (or water), and brush egg wash over the edges of the pie dough
  • Place cubed butter evenly over the top of the apple mixture before baking.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 34-40 minutes, until the crust in golden brown

❸ fig latte

This simple yet indulgent use of Caramelized Fig Syrup will set your holiday mornings off right! 

Simply add ¼ oz of Caramelized Fig Syrup to the bottom of your favorite coffee mug before filling with coffee. Bonus— if you have a milk steamer/frother, add a drizzle (another ¼ oz) of Caramelized Fig Syrup in with your milk and cream before frothing for an added hit of holiday flavor!

❹ charcuterie fig drizzle

Enjoy this elegant and straightforward caramelized fig snack between feasts!

Fig is a classic addition to cheese and charcuterie boards! Simply drizzle Caramelized Fig Syrup over your favorite assortment of cheeses, charcuterie, and toasted bread,

❺ raspberry sauce

Real Raspberry lends a luscious burst of fruit-foward flavor to vanilla ice cream.

For a super simple yet elegant after-dinner treat, simply drizzle 1/2 oz of Raspberry Gum Syrup over a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Served along with fresh raspberries, this is a no-fuss but show-stopping dessert! 

❻ Raspberry-balsamic vinaigrette

Raspberry Gum Syrup can be a key ingredient in a special holiday salad dressing.


  • 2 tbsp Raspberry Gum Syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil


  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously until well emulsified. Use with your favorite salad— we love this dressing with fresh greens, toasted walnuts, feta cheese, and mandarin orange supremes.

❼ Glazed/candied pecans

For the perfect sweet treat to have on hand during holiday gatherings, use Demerara Gum Syrup to candy and glaze pecans!


  • 3 oz Demerara Gum Syrup
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tbsp water
  • 2 tsp orange zest (optional)
  • 2 cups (6 ounces) pecan halves


  • Add Demerara Gum Syrup, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, water, and orange zest (optional) to a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring often until everything is well-blended and dissolved, and begins to lightly bubble— about 1 minute.
  • Stir in the pecan halves so that the sauce coats them. Continue cooking, stirring the entire time until the pecans look candied and smell nutty, about 2-3 minutes. Watch carefully to make sure the nuts don't burn.
  • Transfer the candied pecans to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread them into one layer. Allow the pecans to cool, and break them up before serving.
