This syrup gets it dark colour from the natural molasses that remains in the Demerara sugar crystals after minimal processing. With hints of caramel and a velvety texture, Eli Mason’s Demerara Syrup is indispensable in rum cocktails and Tiki drinks and makes a fine counterpoint in recipes that employ bitters.
2 oz. Light Rum
