What??? A Vanilla Bean Syrup Cocktail?

I know….most folks think about our Madagascar Vanilla Bean simple syrup as only for coffees. Well, it is amazing in coffees, just go to The Muddy Buck in Evergreen or Torpedo Coffee in Denver and ask them! They both use our vanilla syrup to flavor their coffee creations.

When we asked The Beard Behind the Bar to create some interesting, new drinks for our cocktail cards, he amazed us with his Vanilla concoctions.

My favorite cocktail on the list is the Mexican Apple Smash. It has a wintery feel to it with cinnamon, apples and honey. Perfect for apres ski or a cold winter evening.

Mexican Apple Smash

1/2 Fresh Lemon

2-3 Honey Crisp Apple slices

1 tbsp Honey

A sprinkle of Cinnamon

1 part BYS Vanilla Bean Syrup

2 parts tequila

Muddle all ingredients. Shake ingredients with ice, then strain into a glass over ice and top with Soda Water.

Another amazing recipe (that didn’t make the card) is the Chai Tea Cocktail. It combines chai tea, rum, and vanilla syrup. This can be served warm or cold and you can substitute the chai tea with cold brew for a less spicy version.

2 parts rum

Combine ingredients in glass and sprinkle with cinnamon. Can be served warm or over ice.

Did we mention that our Madagascar Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup is made with real Madagascar vanilla beans? Those specks you see in the bottle are a good thing!


We hand split the beans and scrape out the tiny seeds because it is hands down a million times tastier than vanilla extracts and artificial flavors that other vanilla syrups are made with.

Whether you prefer you Madagascar Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup in a coffee or a cocktail, stay warm out there!

Cheers!
