      Caramel Popcorn

      Using our Caramel Syrup

      Spread popcorn over 2 (trust us, one simply wont be enough) large baking trays and drizzle generously with Solano's Caramel Syrup.

      Bake in a slow oven for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

      Store in an airtight container - if there's any left of course.
      Actually this can be made with any flavoured syrup that takes your fancy.

      Platanos Maduros

      Using our Caramel Syrup

       

      If you like sweet dishes you will enjoy sweet plantains in a thick sweet Syrup. This is known in my country as Platanos Maduros.

      Using plantains that are very ripe, (the riper the sweeter, don't worry that the peel may be black)

      Peel plantains and slice into thick chunks and fry the pieces in butter.

      Frying them in butter will allow them to caramelise slightly and get a little colour. Transfer onto a serving dish and drizzle with caramel Syrup and immediately.

      Drinks

      Cookies & Cream

      Cookies & Cream Syrup

      This syrup will take you back to your childhood an your favorite after school snack of milk and bickies.

      (preferably chocolate cream biscuits dunked in milk Mmmmmmm)

      Add this delicious syrup to your favourite hot cup of coffee, latte or cappuccino,or as a fantastic alternative too hot cocoa. Cookies and cream syrup also works a treat as a topping for ice cream,pancakes and even waffles. You can even swirl it into yoghurt too!

      Creme de Cacao

      Creme de Cacao Syrup

      The original Creme de Cacao is a sweet chocolate flavoured alcoholic liqueur, with a hint of vanilla. It's different from chocolate alone which is sweeter and thicker.

      Top with light cream and serve

      Liquid Sugar

      Liquid Sugar Syrup

      An unflavoured sweet simple syrup perfect as a substitute for sugar granules. Wherever you would use sugar you could use syrup such as in baking this way you know the sugar is fully dissolved

      It's most popular use is in the making of cocktails which is why we make this syrup a little lighter and therefore less viscous

      Butterscotch Mudslide

      Using our Butterscotch Syrup

      • 1 1/2 oz Irish Cream Liqueur
      • 1 1/2 oz Solano's Butterscotch Syrups
      • Shot of Espresso or more to your liking

      Pour ingredients and a little ice into a blender and blend until smooth.​

      Pour into a serving glass with ice and garnish with fresh cream.

      And for true decadence, dribble a little extra syrup over the cream.
