A kola with a ‘k’ - made from the African kola nut, the original ingredient and eponym for the iconic drink. Crucially, this is a kola meant for cocktails. Rich spices including cinnamon, vanilla and coffee anchor the flavor while top notes of citrus like bitter orange and lime offer a crisp finish. This Sugarcane Kola Syrup will expand your expectations of what a kola can do in cocktails. Top with club soda or use as a base syrup.

The African C. acuminata tree produces these caffeine filled seeds. Their initial bitterness gives way to an earthy sweetness. For the Igbo and other West Africans, kola nuts symbolize good-will, love and respect for elders.
I found this product when researching cane sugar based flavorings, and what a find! A tablespoon of syrup in a tall glass, topped with seltzer water (made with SodaStream gizmo, filled with ice - so refreshing, and w/o all the bottles and cans. Kola, blood orange, and raspberry syrups are fantastic!
We added the sugarcane kola syrup to our order to make Cuba Libres, but the Kola Old Fashioned has quickly taken 2nd place on our favorites list, a close second behind the Fig Old Fashioned, also from Liber & Co syrup, of course.
I tried the Kola syrup out of curiosity and frankly wasn’t sure what to expect. Well, after trying several cocktails, including ‘High Falutin’ and The Lexington from the Liber site, I am completely sold. This stuff is delicious! The delicious cinnamon and vanilla along with some orange makes this syrup a must for any home bar!
It is very balanced and has enough of a complexity to make it interesting - not what I usually thought about commercial cola . I love it in the Cuba Libre and the Colorado Bulldog
I sampled the kola and it was quite good, then my kids found it and they make soda pop out of sparkling water- its almost gone now. Buy a case
