P&H Lime Syrup
It's difficult to imagine what cocktails would be like without limes. The tang of citrus and a bit of sweetness is a cornerstone to making a delicious, balanced cocktail. Together in syrup form, this will make mixing cocktails at home easier, especially on the days when you really need one.
Made with squeezed lime juice, this sugar syrup dissolves into cold alcohol much better than granular sugar (in fact don't go down that route, it ends in a crunchy cocktail.) Mix this with cold seltzer and you'll get a mean glass of limeade.
Anton Nocito, the man behind P&H Soda Company is a trained chef, so rest assured that these syrups are made with a deft hand and tested with an expert palate.
These syrups are made to be experimented with. Get to know the flavor by making a simple soda: in a tall glass, put about two fingers worth in the bottom and fill with cold, bubbly seltzer. Here are two cocktail recipes to get you started:
2 ounces gin (Aviation or Plymouth)
3/4 ounces lime syrup
3/4 ounces lime juice
Use a cocktail jigger to measure to get the best balance of flavors. Put all the ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker, shake it up and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a thin round of lime.
1 ounce lime syrup
3 dashes bitters
6–8 ounces of seltzer
Add syrup and bitters into an ice-filled glass. Fill with seltzer and stir to mix.
These delicious, all-natural syrups are Anton Nocito's first step towards owning his own soda fountain. For a lot of adults, going to a soda fountain — with formica counter tops, spinning vinyl stools, a man behind the counter perhaps wearing a soft paper cap — is a sweet memory marred only by the industrial foods and sodas these places served.
Nocito wants to recreate that soda fountain feeling, but with natural ingredients, sourced responsibly and organic when possible. He uses no high fructose corn syrups or other mysterious ingredients in his syrups, because flavor — not shelf life, nor mouth-feel — is king.
