Royal Rose is in Maine and loving every second!  Our syrups are now available to purchase at Treats in Wiscasset, Maine (home of the famous Red's lobster roll- trust me, it's delicious), and at Aurora Provisions in Portland. Royal Rose syrup is also behind the bar at 40 Paper in Camden.

Life in "Vacationland" is pretty awesome.  Here are some highlights:

-walks on the beach every morning
-fresh lobster any time we want
-whoopie pies from Cranberry Island Kitchen
-oysters and white wine (or bubbly!) at Eventide
-ferry rides to Peak's Island to watch the sunset
-Art Walks at the Pepperell Mill (site of our new kitchen)

Of course, making cocktails in the fresh, Maine air doesn't hurt.  If you're in the mood for something that feels like fall, try this oldie-but-goodie:

Rose of the Desert
 1 1/4 oz. Courvoisier
1/2 oz. Laird's Applejack
1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz. Royal Rose Rose Syrup
1/4 oz. Royal Rose Cardamom-Clove Syrup
8 drops Moroccan Bitters by the Bitter End

Combine ingredients and shake with ice.  Strain into a cocktail glass and serve straight up. Add another drop or two of bitters, if desired.
