Hints of Spice and rich molasses are the star of this refreshing holiday treat. It’s sure to tantalize your guests with full, rich flavours and light body. (Drink responsibly, they sneak up quick when they’re this smooth.)

Here’s a non-alcoholic option: The Lorenzo Sour, a play on the classic Dark & Stormy.

This recipe uses our Molasses Simple Syrup as a sweet & flavour base.
