As at-home bartenders are looking for more original flavor combinations and professional ones are hoping to elevate their cocktail menus, Monin is giving them all a reason to mix more — the debut of its 2021 flavor of the year, Strawberry Rose.
“Strawberry Rose is a sophisticated and on-trend flavor that mixes well in a variety of applications including lattes, cocktails and desserts,” says Stasha Johnston, senior vice president of marketing. “Fruit floral flavors continue to gain traction, and we look forward to helping customers incorporate this innovative blend in unique and interesting ways.”
The new syrup combines ruby red strawberry, adding a beautiful scarlet hue while delivering notes of candied strawberry and soft rose in every sip and bite. It can be added to a variety of recipes including lattes, teas, cocktails, lemonades, sparkling waters, dressings and desserts.
“As the pandemic continues to impact the nation, consumers are still gravitating toward familiar and comforting flavors; however, they are also looking for something unique that can offer them a brief escape from reality,” says Bill Lombardo, CEO of Monin Americas. “Strawberry is a mainstream flavor that many enjoy. Blending a floral flavor such as rose with the popular fruit makes for an ideal and on-trend new offering for our customers.”
Monin Strawberry Rose Syrup is clean label, meaning it is made with the highest-quality natural ingredients that are free from any artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and sweeteners.
