Drink of the Week: Cocktail & Sons King Cake Syrup

Riffing off the flavors of the colorful king cake (an ever-present sweet throughout New Orleans’ Epiphany and Mardi Gras celebrations), Cocktail & Sons King Cake Syrup combines flavors of toasted pecan, cinnamon and citrus into one cocktail-ready quaffer—simply mix with a squeeze of lemon and a splash of spirit and you’re good to go (or multiply for several servings).

Says company founder Max Messier, “People during Mardi Gras are all about punches. And king cake. So we created a cocktail [syrup] for the best of both worlds.”
