Strawberry Smash Cocktail

The best times in life are those spent with family and friends.

Wow them with your amazing bartending skills at your next get-together with our latest cocktail creation, this Strawberry Smash cocktail recipe

The sweetness of strawberries is a playful companion to the citrus of orange, so we’ve added our Neroli  for an aromatic citrus sweet with a slight bitter finish. (It’s bitter in the best of ways) and really pops against the ripe fruit, boosting the brightness and flavour of both.

By flavouring the drink itself and NOT the simple syrup, the syrup can be used across multiple types of drinks and flavour combinations, so it lasts longer and suits everyone’s tastes. 

Whether it’s a cocktail or a mocktail, we guarantee it will be a fun and tasty drink. Flavour it your way with Hedessent Flavourful Food!
