Summer Sipping with Torani

Lemonade and iced tea – the official drinks of summer. These long-loved beverages bring refreshment on the warmest days. But even the best traditions can benefit from reinvention. That’s where Torani Syrups come in. Made with pure cane sugar and natural flavors, Torani’s extensive line of syrups can transform a simple glass of tea or lemonade into a summer taste bud getaway. If it’s slushies, flavored sodas, mocktails or cocktails you and your guest are seeking to sip your way through summer, Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse’s vast assortment of Torani syrups have you covered.

Prickly Pear

With a flavor profile based on the colorful edible cactus fruit, Torani’s Prickly Pear Syrup has an earthy flavor with an arresting tartness. To make this refresher, simply combine 4 oz. chilled tea, 4 oz chilled lemonade and 2 Tbsp. Torani Prickly Pear Syrup.

Cantaloupe Cream Soda

Evoking the essence of fresh, juicy cantaloupe, this bubbly drink is made with ½ oz. Torani Cantaloupe Syrup, ½ oz. Torani Vanilla Syrup and 8 oz. sparkling water.

Cranberry Mule Mocktail

The blend of tart and sweet cranberry flavor paired with the effervescence of ginger beer makes this mocktail memorable. Add ice to a copper mug, add 2 oz. Torani Cranberry Syrup, 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice and top with 4 oz. of non-alcoholic ginger beer.

Cranberry-Blue Raspberry Energy Slush (layered)

Also containing tart cranberry syrup, this energy slush features the sweetness of blue raspberry. To make, combine 1 oz. Torani Cranberry Syrup with 4 oz. of an energy drink and 3 oz of ice. Blend and pour into a glass. Next, mix 1 oz. Torani Blue Raspberry Syrup with 4 oz. of the energy drink and 3 oz. of ice. Blend and pour over cranberry slush for a layered look.

Summer Slushie Cocktail

A little extra effort (but well worth it), this peach, strawberry and watermelon cocktail requires freezing fresh watermelon (no rind) overnight. We like scooping the fruit out of two mini watermelons sliced in half to use as serving cups later. After freezing, combine 2 oz. Torani Watermelon Syrup, 2 oz. Torani Peach Syrup, 1 oz. Torani Strawberry Syrup, ¾ cup water and 2 oz. vodka.
