Blueberries (aka Myrtille) are native to the USA and are widely cultivated in Sardinia where they are made into Mirto, one of Italy's best-loved liqueurs. Sweet with a nice bite of residual tartness, this is wonderful in cakes, banana milkshakes and desserts, especially trifles and fruit compote or summer pudding.
Monin's glorious cherry syrup has just the right amount of tart juiciness and is perfect for compotes and summer puddings as well as being an unusual non-alcoholic alternative to marschino or cherry brandy in a range of cocktails. Also great in cola, of course.
A wonderful chocolate syrup from Monin that tastes like, and can be used as a substitute for, a cacao liqueur in various drinks and puddings. Or just drizzled on vanilla ice cream. Fabulously indulgent.
Monin have somehow managed to catch the flavour of freshly-grated coconut for this delicious syrup. As you'd expect, it's perfect in rum-based cocktails, especially pina coladas, pineapple punches and lots of other exotic fruit drinks. Almost like a liquid Bounty.
There's been an astonishing growth in the trend for Elderflower flavours in cocktail culture in the last year or three, but Monin have been doing this stonking syrup for much longer. Ideal with a range of vodka, gin and champagne cocktails or add a drop to your white wine.
A fabulous sweet ginger syrup from Monin. As this tastes almost exactly like liquid ginger snaps, with a lovely sweet cinnamon kick, it's perfect for chocolatey or coffee-flavoured cocktails, as well as in cakes or on ice cream. Scrummy.
A very popular Monin syrup, cunningly presenting all the flavours of a perfect Irish Coffee - creamy caramel-tinged coffee - without the troublesome booze element. Add some to your Americano for work-based pretend decadence.
The beautifully-scented jasmine is no longer the preserve of teamakers and perfumiers - now master syrup-concocters Monin have got in on the act, making this wonderfully aromatic floral ingredient available to all in the form of a syrup. Not only for exotic cocktails, this syrup is excellent in baking, with tea (obviously) as well as ice cream and thick smoothies.
A superbly unusual lavender syrup from French maestros Monin, this is a surprisingly versatile concoction, equally at home in biscuits or desserts or with teas as it is when adding complexity to your gin or vodka cocktails - try misting it over Martinis or Aviations...
