A gathering of friends at a summer party might just be the occasion to indulge in a cocktail or two! We all know the classics. Manhattan, Cosmopolitan and Tequila Sunrise are all great mixologist creations. How about something slightly different for a change? Wild About in Co. Wexford produce a selection of syrups that make the perfect base for a snazzy cocktail mix you won’t have tried before. Fiona and Malcom Falconer grow their own seasonal herbs, fruits and vegetables for all the Wild About range of syrups, chutneys, preserves and dressings. They even have their own foraging forest where wild ingredients abound for the picking. Wild About Syrups include Rhubarb, Nettle, Raspberry. All these seasonal syrups are carefully created by hand in the Falconer’s kitchen. They make thirst quenching non alcoholic drinks – mixed with sparkling water, lemonade or fresh juice. In cocktails, they blend well with vodka, rum, tequila, sparkling wine or even champagne for the most stylish of drinks.  Try a Wild About Nettle Margarita Sting – made with nettles from the Falconer’s prolific patch.  Or a Raspberry Wish based on champagne and Raspberry Syrup, produced from berries picked fresh from the garden. Wild Mojito contains white rum and Rhubarb syrup – a pink syrup packed with zingy fresh fruit flavours. Find the recipes for all these in our Recipe listings.
