Let’s face it: drink recipes can get boring after a while – even if it’s our favorite cocktail of all time. If you’re looking for a way to add unique flavor, then it’s important to know how you can play with flavor combinations. If you learn to understand how fruit flavors combine with others, then you can play with a few spirits and experiment with your own cocktail recipes.
With years of experience in creating and tasting cocktails, below are some of our suggestions for fruit flavor combinations. Of course, these are just loose guidelines, so feel free to get as creative as you want! Once you have a basic understanding of fruit flavor combinations for cocktails, then you’ll have a better idea of how to use fruit syrup as well.
- Amoretti Premium Tart Apple Syrup. Premium apple flavor is one of the easiest ways to add unique flavor to your beverages. Simply imagine your favorite desserts and you’ll know that apple pairs incredibly well with caramel, cinnamon, and other earthy flavors like chestnut. Want a more tart flavor? Then consider mixing apple with cranberry or mango. Tasty!
- Amoretti Premium Blood Orange Syrup. One of the aspects that makes this citrus syrup unique is that it’s “darker” than regular orange syrup. The distinct tartness is still present, but there’s a sweeter and more intense taste. Add unique flavor by mixing blood orange with honey, chocolate, and other citrus flavors. If you’re unsure about how to use fruit syrup, this is one that you can experiment with easily, as it mixes well with a wide range of flavors.
- Amoretti Premium Coconut Cream Syrup. Add unique flavor to your beverages by incorporating the cream of coconut with flavors that are already “creamy,” or those that are extremely tart. Coconut pairs deliciously with banana, caramel, and nutty flavors – but it’s also the perfect balance for citrusy flavors like pineapple, lemongrass, and other tropical fruits.
- Amoretti Premium Elderberry Blossom Syrup. Because of its unusual taste, many people are unsure how to use fruit syrup with elderberry. Fortunately, it’s simple to add unique flavor by mixing elderberry with other berries including raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry.
- Amoretti Premium Pear Syrup. We absolutely love the sweeter, denser taste that pear provides. It mixes well with other “dark” flavors such as almond, chestnut, chocolate, and walnut. But you can also complement it with apple or citrus flavors as well.
