{Now Closed} Giveaway // Cocktail & Sons Cocktail Syrup Trio And how to make the perfect Hurricane Cocktail with Fassionola

Giveaway: Cocktail & Sons Syrups // stirandstrain.comFassionola. You might be wondering what that word is, or whether or not I am misspelling something. But if you’re not familiar with that word, you’re making your Hurricane cocktail all wrong.

Wrong?! Well, we’ve had to swap out ingredients for a long time since Fassionola, a syrup made from a blend of strawberries and tropical fruits, hasn’t been on the market for, oh… 30+ years now. The syrup is one of the original ingredients in the famed Hurricane cocktail as invented at Pat O’Brien’s in the French Quarter. It has a history, and now Cocktail & Sons have resurrected it, and one lucky Stir and Strain reader can score a bottle. And since everyone is in a generous mood, they’re also giving away bottles of their Mint & Lemon Verbena and the Spiced Demerara Syrups. All superb fits for your summer drinking needs.

Giveaway: Cocktail & Sons Syrups // stirandstrain.comSince Cocktail & Sons prides themselves are only using the best seasonal ingredients in season, the Fassionola syrup will only be available until June 30th (strawberries don’t grow in October…)! So stock up if you can. And in the meantime, enter below to win your own bottle: you get up to 8 entries to help you along (open to US residents only)! Giveaway ends at 11:59pm PST Sunday May 29th, 2016. For more information on Cocktail & Sons, check out their website at cocktailandsons.com today! Good luck!
