Onopops Fruit Syrups: All Natural, All Local Syrups for Your Sodas and Cocktails

Onopops Fruit Syrups: All Natural, All Local Syrups for Your Sodas and Cocktails

OnoPops is well known locally for its frozen treats, but the company's all-local and all-natural fruit syrups are as delightful as their popsicles: Flavors include Kula Strawberry, 4 Kine Lime and my favorite, Honolulu Tamarind.

You can make a quick fruit soda with these syrups, just by adding soda water, but grownups might prefer using them to whip up a tasty cocktail or two. The tamarind flavor, for example, makes an easy, great drink when mixed with equal parts of spirit and fresh-squeezed citrus. Try bourbon, lime and the tamarind syrup for a novel take on the whiskey sour.

Need more ideas? Here are three more recipes from OnoPops' founder Josh Welch, just in time to toast the new year.
