As a bartender, I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting ingredients to add to my cocktail recipes. Recently, I stumbled upon a unique syrup called Fassionola.
At first, I had no idea what it was or how to use it, but after some experimentation, I found that it adds a delicious tropical flavor to drinks.
Fassionola is a bright red syrup made from fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, and passion fruit. It was originally created in New Orleans in the early 1900s and was used in a variety of cocktails, including the Hurricane.
However, it fell out of popularity in the 1950s and was nearly forgotten until recently when bartenders started rediscovering it.
One of the reasons Fassionola is so exciting to work with is that it's versatile. It can be used in a variety of cocktails, including Tiki drinks, Margaritas, and even non-alcoholic beverages.
Its sweet and tangy flavor pairs well with rum, tequila, and gin, making it a great addition to any bar.
In this blog post, I'm going to share some of the best Fassionola cocktail recipes I've come across.
