Let the Party Begin with this Retro Cocktail Roundup
We took some of the most iconic cocktails in the world and gave them a low-sugar makeover
After the fun of the Gin Fizz, it was kind of a no-brainer to create a roundup of classic cocktails from bygone eras. Who doesn't like to mix up their go-to cocktail once in a while?
The common thread between these old-timey sippers is that they include simple syrup in their ingredients list. We looked for a range of spirits and complexity. We've got something for everyone, whether you like your cocktails with gin, vodka, whiskey, champagne, or wine. No, really!
We gave these retro cocktails a makeover using Sugar Free Sinless Simple Syrup. Take your creations to the NEXT LEVEL of mixology by delivering only the sweetness you need, without the sugar or artificial sweeteners you don't.
Give these Retro Cocktail Recipes a whirl with Sinless Simple Syrup:
1. NEW YORK SOUR
This bold spin on the Whiskey Sour may actually have originated in Chicago as the Continental Sour. Nevertheless, the New York Sour is known for its adopted city and for the impressive visual and flavor impact it delivers. It can be made without the egg white, but loses some of the silky texture.
The Sazerac is for those who seriously love retro cocktails. Born in New Orleans, this big and bold beverage gets an unexpected pop from Absinthe.
3. GIN CAMPARI OLD FASHIONED
Campari is a beloved Italian liquor and best known in another retro cockail called the Negroni. The Gin Campari Old Fashioned diches the bourbon of the old fashioned and the vermouth of the Negroni in favor of bitters, simple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
4. FRENCH 75
Looking for a fresh, elegant cocktail this Summer? Try the French 75, which delivers an herbaceous and vivacious experience with gin & champagne. The recipe is delightfully simple, made better with Sinless Simple Syrup.
5. VODKA GIMLET
With gin featured twice already in our roundup, we opted for the Vodka Gimlet as our final retro cocktail. Whatever spirit you choose, the gimlet is vibrant and refreshing on those hot Summer days or nights.
