Cocktail & Sons is Max Messier’s brainchild – an award-winning bartender and spirits consultant currently based in New Orleans, LA. Over six years, Max has produced a range of original and inventive syrups, cordials, and tea concentrates for various bars and restaurants in New York City, NY, and New Orleans, LA.
With a successful track record of producing unique cocktail programs in high-profile bars and restaurants, Max decided to focus his culinary efforts towards revitalizing the forgotten relic of the concept called a “Home Bar” taught to him by his paternal grandparents during his halcyon days of youth behind their custom-built “wet” bar in their house. During his days “behind the stick” working in bars and restaurants, Max would always advise his bar patrons on building a proper Daiquiri or preparing a whiz-bang Old Fashioned in their home.
Max decided to pull out all of the recipes he had concocted over the years and worked in tandem with his wife, Lauren Myerscough, to produce a line of all-natural and handcrafted syrups designed for classic cocktails. The collection includes Old Fashioned, Daiquiri, Mojito, Tom Collins, Margarita, Gimlet, and new-fangled modern cocktails. Additionally, the syrups offer their use as base components for refreshing sodas.
The syrups are designed with simplicity in mind. All you need to build your own Tom Collins or Old Fashioned is a measuring device such as a jigger, a bar spoon, fresh citrus, bitters, booze, ice, and a glass. The syrups are easy to use for cocktail creations without a cocktail shaker. You can do up your own Old Fashioned with a simple shake of bitters, ice, your favorite whiskey, and a healthy splash of “Cocktail & Sons’ Spiced Demerara” syrup.
All of the syrups contain natural ingredients and real sugars – no additives, coloring agents, or artificial additives – combined with original recipes concocted by Max plus tested and approved by his bartender brethren across the United States of America.
In addition to the line of syrups, the “Cocktail & Sons” website will host a database of cocktail and soda recipes to enable everyone to explore and construct their unique variations of imbibers and refreshing tipplers with the line of syrups.
