Review: Cocktail & Sons Fassionola Syrup (2017)

Fassionola bottle shot

Cocktail & Sons’ seasonal Fassionola — a red tiki syrup that includes pineapple, mango, passion fruit, hibiscus flowers, strawberries, and lime zest — is back in time for the summer, and the company has tweaked the recipe in time for the inauguration of its partnership with Ruth’s Chris steakhouse, where the syrup will be featured on the cocktail menu.

This year’s version sees the strawberry dialed back a bit and the pineapple notes taking more of a central role (while still allowing for plenty of clean and fresh strawberry character). Very tiki in tone, it pairs well with a lighter, fruitier rum, which lets the freshness of the Fassionola show itself with gorgeous clarity. It’s a definite improvement over 2016’s model — give it a spin in your next Hurricane!
