In 2012 wife and husband team, Genevieve and Dan Brazelton, started The Bitter Housewife with the mission to create a brand that made cocktails approachable through great tasting flavors, simple recipes, and lots of education. They expanded to add RAFT Syrups a few years later because bitter is always better with sweet. See our previous review of some of their more interesting syrups and bitters here.
Now, for a limited time only, they have a seasonal flavor syrup just in time for the holidays! RAFT Cranberry Five Spice is a tart, sweet, spiced syrup that tastes like the holidays. Bright cranberry is complimented with fresh ginger, star anise, cinnamon, black pepper, and cloves.
Slow-brewed in Portland, Oregon with organic spices and organic cane sugar, RAFT uses no preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or colors. It is also 100% vegan.
Cranberry Five Spice: Tart with a fresh cranberry flavor supported by a medium ginger spice heat. A touch of anise and clove hit the top notes. This is a fantastic syrup that will work well with just about any base spirit, or as the lead in a non-alcoholic cocktail or soda. The flavor is immensely appealing and shines through due to the bright cranberry and warmth of the spice blend. Grab a few bottles so you don’t run out before the end of the year!
