We talk to SO many people at farmers markets and shows and festivals about how to use Mars' syrups and herb mixes! And we get amazing suggestions all the time from our customers for new and inventive ways to use them!

There will be another post soon with recipes for his delicious herb blends too!

Here are just a few of the MANY ways to enjoy Marcel's Marvelous Mixes Syrups!

Marcel's Syrup Recipes

Sarsaparilla Float

This one came from our friend Laura:

  • 1 oz Bourbon
  • 2 Tblsp Marcel's Sarsaparilla Syrup
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Soda Water

Combine bourbon and syrup, then mix in ice cream and soda water for a fabulous float!

Lavender Martini

2 oz Vodka

1/2 oz Limoncello liqueur

1-2 Tblsp Lavender Syrup

Shake on ice, pour into a chilled martini glass with a lemon twist and (if available) a lavender flower for a gorgeous looking (and tasting) drink!

Elder Spritzer


1 oz Bacardi Limon

1 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

1/2 oz Elderberry Syrup

6-8 oz seltzer or soda water


Love Potion  #9

1.5 oz Bacardi Limon

2 Tblsps Philter Amatus (Love Potion) Syrup

3 oz seltzer or soda water


Combine in a glass over the ice. Optional: add a splash of your favorite juice, or another liqueur such as blue curacao to make it violet! Nice with a twist or wedge of citrus.

Dark & Stormy

1.5 oz Dark or Spiced Rum (or try Bourbon)

1 oz Ginger Syrup

6-8 oz seltzer or soda water


This is a lovely take on a classic cocktail, combining the rum with the spicy, wonderful character of hand-crafted ginger syrup!
