This Week's Must-Have

Gourmet Simple Syrups

Savor the final days of Indian summer with refreshing sodas and libations made from epicurean syrups.

While warm days may be waning, there is still sweet golden sunlight to be reveled in—at least in San Francisco, land of the VNHQ (and an omnipresent fog that only seems to wither in early autumn). What could be better for enjoying the dwindling hours of pool rafts and tanlines than a gourmet beverage to keep cool? Brooklyn-based Royal Rose’s artisanal simple syrups elevate classic coolers like soda, lemonade, Champagne, and cocktails with nouveau, punchy flavors like lavender-lemon, rose, tamarind, and cardamom-clove. Sip a lavender-lemon Kir Royale under your parasol, or let a tamarind vodka tonic wash your back-to-school woes away. Better yet, the syrups are handcrafted in small batches and most are 100-percent organic. Let your inner mixologist run wild!
