A little goes a long way when it comes to these pretty bottles of syrup.

Handy to have in the fridge, a splash will liven up a glass of sparkling water for a refreshing summer drink, or add a touch of the top shelf to liven up a cocktail or aperitif.

They can also be made into fruit or herbal teas, or added to cereal, baking, desserts or meat glazes.

Mix the coffee syrup with soda water or milk for a icy cold coffee, or if you’re feeling poorly, give the ginger, lemon, and pure manuka honey Hakanoa syrup a whirl as a hot toddy. Many are low in sugar, all are versatile.
