Let’s start with coffee, our personal favorite. 

We recommend starting with ½ oz of Flavor Syrup per 1 cup of coffee. Of course, everyone’s taste preferences are different. Some of us like our coffee bold, others like it on the sweeter side. So, feel free to add more flavoring to your liking! 

These are the flavors we recommend for your morning brew, 

Cocktails

So, you find yourself on Friday evening longing for a delicious cocktail to wash down the week. You don’t have any bar syrups but you do have our Snow Cone Bundle! This means you have the flavors Watermelon and Lemon Lime! Woo-hoo

Start off with ½ oz of Flavor Syrup per 1 ½ oz of either tequila, vodka, or rum. As mentioned before, you can always add more to your liking. It’s easy when you’re your own bartender. 

Here’s the flavors we recommend for cocktails:

We can’t just recommend our products without a delicious summer cocktail recipe! So, here’s our take on a Watermelon Chile Margarita:

  • 1 ½ oz of preferred tequila
  • ½ oz of Nature’s Flavors Organic Watermelon Snow Cone Syrup
  • A squeeze of lime
  • 1 tsp sea salt, lemon, chili powder
  • Rim with sea, salt, lemon, chili powder

You can use the same measurements for the lemonades as the cocktail ratio. And remember, you can always add more to your liking. 

By using our Snow Cone Syrup and carbonated water, you can make your own healthier version of a soda! They’re made with Organic Cane Sugar and never contain any artificial colors or ingredients! Read this blog post to learn about eliminating food dyes and High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) for your lifestyle.

To flavor your carbonated water, use about 1 tbsp per 8oz of carbonated water. Give it a good stir but don’t go too crazy.

Below are some of our recommended flavors for lemonades and carbonated water:

With our various Cola Flavored products, you can still get the same rich sweet cola taste without the HFCS. It’s a win-win!

Ice Cream & Milkshakes

Drizzle this syrup over strawberry ice cream to elevate your dessert.

Now, is it really summer if you didn’t enjoy some ice cream? Of course it isn’t! 

To use our snow cone flavorings, we recommend using a vanilla ice cream for a neutral base. You can either pour 1 tablespoon over your ice cream, or swirl it into your milkshakes! Easily make a strawberry and vanilla milkshake by using our Natural or Organic Strawberry Snow Cone Syrup. Or, make a delicious root beer float milkshake with our Natural or Organic Root Beer Snow Cone Syrup!

It seems like we all value kitchen resources that offer us versatility and convenience. Whether it’s space-saving Tupperware, or that bag of pasta that you keep stocked in your pantry, we all need back up in the kitchen. With this in mind, citric acid powder may have to be the newest addition to your kitchen!

Sour… Salt?

Discovered in 1917, citric acid powder actually comes from mold. And yes, you heard that correctly. Nevertheless, the mold by the name of “Aspergillus niger” is what creates this magical powder. Uniquely, the mold metabolizes sucrose or glucose which proves to be more efficient than extracting directly from citrus fruits. Citrus acid powder is actually more commonly referred to as sour salt because if its appearance and taste. Not to mention the candy-like appearance.

What Can I Use Citrus Acid Powder For?

As mentioned earlier, citric acid powder is versatile in the kitchen. It can enhance flavors, preserve various foods, and even ripen them. The reason why citric acid powder is essential to preserving food is because it is able to prevent bacteria from growing. Therefore, citric acid powder is a great addition to jams, jellies, and other canned products. It is also useful in the cheese-making process because it speeds it up. Fun fact, most companies in the world use citrus acid powder as a flavor enhancer in beverages.
