Flavoured Syrups ad ‘Je ne sais quoi’
to drinks and recipes
French cooks (and local bartenders) are in the know about the subtle ‘something’ that flavoured syrups add to a dish or beverage. When you say the word ‘syrup’ most Canadians think immediately of maple syrup and know of only one use – on pancakes. French syrups come in a wide range of interesting flavours which are used in a number of different ways to enhance the flavour profile of a dish. The French also pour syrup on crepes, over ice cream for a quick dessert, replace some of the sugar in a pie or tarte filling with flavoured syrup, use it in cocktails or to make a refreshing summer drink.

L’Epicerie Gourmande carries two different lines of French syrups – our own Private Label ($12.95 per 250 ml bottle) and Barbapapa ($19.95 – $21.95 in a 350 ml collector bottle).

Our Private Label syrups are available in a variety of flavours: lavender, violet, wild strawberry, melon, fig, lychee rose and jasmine. The Barbapapa line includes: cotton candy, grenadine, candied banana, gingerbread and cola. The special Hello Kitty Syrup, perfect for children’s birthday parties, contains strawberry ice cream flavour.

To make a wonderful aperitif or summer refresher, add one part flavoured syrup to four parts of your choice of either lemonade, sparkling water or prosecco/sparkling wine.
