I know that it is Monday so I thought that I would do a blog post all about coffee syrups because we all need a flavour boost for those drab Mondays.
The whole background of Monin is that Georges Monin saw that things were lacking flavour and colour and being a flavour enthusiast, he decided to conjure up some great syrups to stir things up and it slowly grew from there. There are many flavours and many ranges including your favourites such as Gingerbread, Caramel, Vanilla, Black Forest, Chocolate Cookie, Hazelnut and many more.
The wonderful people over at the PR that sort Monin out sent me some lovely syrups to try out for the colder days as Autumn is now upon us. The syrups that they sent me were Vanilla and Caramel. Both sweet but delectable! Both of the syrups come in beautifully designed glass bottles and are sold at Tesco's and Sainsburys. They were on offer but I'd purchase them off the offer as well as they're worth the money!
The first syrup that I will talk about is the Vanilla syrup. It smelt exactly like fresh Vanilla and had a fresh yet clean sort of taste to it. Best for things like milkshakes, Vanilla Mojitos/Daiquiris and other things. I cant wait to use this with a White Hot Chocolate to add another dimension to as I know that it will be delicious and decadent! I know that Vanilla seems well quite Vanilla but its amazing in coffee syrup form.
The caramel syrup is sweet yet so moreish. It tasted like warm caramel and I think I am definitely going to be using this a lot during the cold months. I think that this particular syrup would be good for things such as Caramel Lattes/a Caramel Coldbrew or maybe a cocktail that includes Salted Caramel Vodka to add a luxurious feel to the drink.
Have you tried any of the Monin syrups? What Monin syrups would you like to try? Let me know down below!
I hope that you have enjoyed this little post about Monin and I hope that you try their syrups in a nice warming drink or within a refreshingly delicious cocktail. I hope that you have enjoyed this post and I hope to see you next time for another post!
