What is Monin brand syrup?
Monin is a brand of gourmet flavored syrups that have been around since 1912 and were created by George Monin in France. In 2012 they celebrated 100 years of making flavored syrups. They offer a wide range of syrup flavors and I personally use a lot of their flavors in my desserts and drink recipes. I have tried the toasted marshmallow, peppermint, lavender, maple donut, sugar cookie and so many other flavors. You can make a variety of cocktails using their flavored syrups you can even add them to baked goods if you want a flavor boost. I added the toasted marshmallow to smores waffles that I made and it was amazing!
