Drink of the Week: W&P Craft Cocktail Syrups

Whipping up an Old Fashioned or Margarita is an easy way to please a crowd, but only if you’ve got the right ingredients on hand. The new line of Craft Cocktail Syrups from W&P make it a cinch to mix a simple cocktail that tastes great. Mix with your whiskey of choice for the Old Fashioned, which includes Demerara sugar and aromatic bitters, then stir with ice. The Spicy Margarita is made with sugar, lime juice and chili pepper extract for a not-too-sweet Margarita, and the Moscow Mule combines sugar, ginger and lime juice—just add vodka and top with seltzer. These pre-made syrups yield surprisingly fresh-tasting cocktails, perfect for hassle-free entertaining. The 8-oz. bottles each make 16 cocktails. $35/set of 3, wandpdesign.com.
