HOW LONG DO THE SYRUPS LAST?
Before they are opened, they last indefinitely. After they are opened, they will keep for up to three months if properly refrigerated, however the flavor will fall off a bit over time.
HOW MANY COCKTAILS CAN I MAKE WITH ONE BOTTLE?
Recipes typically call for ¼–¾ oz. of syrup, so you can make between 11-34 drinks from one bottle, depending on what you are making. It also depends on how extreme your sweet tooth is.
DO YOU USE ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVES?
Nope. We use only real ingredients and natural processes. Elbow grease is 100% natural.
ARE THE SYRUPS ORGANIC?
We use organic sugar and other organic ingredients whenever possible so our syrups stay affordable and you can live your best Bougie life.
ARE THE SYRUPS GLUTEN FREE?
We use a small amount of glucose syrup in all of our products which can be derived from wheat. However, no more than trace amounts of gluten end up in the cocktails. It’s not a piece of bread but if you have an allergy, this may not be the syrup for you.
HOW DO I USE THIS STUFF?
Check out our recipes page! Some of our customers use it only in cocktails, some in cooking recipes, some for coffee, some just drink it out of the bottle. We promised not to name names.
CAN I MIX IT WITH VODKA?
Yes! But why did you have to go straight to vodka? You’ve heard of gin right? Rum? You should check the recipe page...there’s a whole world out there.
CAN I USE THIS FOR ANYTHING BESIDES COCKTAILS?
Absolutely! Coffee, tea, lemonades, soda water, or drink it straight! We don’t recommend that but hey, you live your life how you want to.
I DON'T WANT ANYTHING TOO SWEET...
That's not a question! But the beauty is that YOU control the level of sweetness. Play around with different recipes until you find something you like.
DO YOU MAKE LARGER SIZES?
Not yet. Wait, are you the one who’s been drinking it out of the bottle?
WHO IS THE GLAMOROUS VIXEN ON YOUR BOTTLE?
That is Ursula. She is the emblem of being Bougie. She is glamorous, over the top, tasteful, and sexy as hell. We all aspire to be her level of amazing.
IS URSULA SINGLE?
Ursula is a goddess who cannot be satisfied by any mortal man or woman. She is completely out of everyone’s league. She will flirt with you though—just don’t get your hopes up.
ARE THESE AVAILABLE IN RETAIL STORES?
Currently, we are only available in Colorado but are working on expanding to other markets. Keep an eye out or ask the manager at your favorite local bottle shop! Demand it from them...hand them our business card...we’ll be waiting.
OCCASIONALLY YOUR PRODUCTS MAKE ME WANT TO PUT ON FANCY CLOTHES AND SHOW THE WORLD JUST HOW SEXY I AM. IS THIS NORMAL?
You have officially embodied the Bougie. Congratulations and welcome to Ursula’s world.
