Marco Polo Raspberry Syrup

Your Vultures usually shy away from commercial syrups because it’s so easy to make great syrup with fresh ingredients in your own kitchen. But fruit syrups are only as good as the fruit you just bought and at the wrong time of the year, those pretty red berries are actually flavorless.

Marco Polo to the rescue! We were enticed to pull this bottle off a shelf at our favorite market, Adams Fairacre Farms, and were rewarded by its bright taste of raspberry and natural sugar, with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. It makes a delicious Knickerbocker and a great Clover Club. It would also be lovely with some ice and seltzer to make your own natural fruit soda. Watch this space as we explore Marco Polo’s other flavors!
