Jelly Bean

SIMPLE SYRUP

For our first cocktail blog post, we decided to get cocktail inspiration from jelly beans.

The colors... the flavors – it makes spring cocktailing so much fun! So we decided to make various simple syrups based on the flavors and colors of jelly beans. Below are the steps to making a jelly bean simple syrup.

Jelly Mule

    Fill up your copper mug and mixing glass with crushed ice. Add Mamont Vodka to the mixing glass.
