Review: Sweetbird Syrup

24th April 2011

It’s not secret that I’m partial to a pump or syrup or two in my latte, but with a selection of syrups from Sweetbird to review a whole new world has opened up to me. Sweetbird syrups are the only syrups that are approved by the Vegetarian Society and vegan approved by Viva! I have been enjoying banana or raspberry in my Zuma hot chocolate and cherry in my mocha.

Raspberry and Banana syrups

Toasted marshmallow went down really well in the Ikeda house but it didn’t taste very marshmallow-ee to me

There are plenty of recipe ideas on the Sweetbird website for cocktails, smoothies and hot drinks but here are a couple I have come up with myself for my most fav syrups:

Raspberry vodka iced tea

Serves 1


  • 3 tbsp Sweetbird raspberry iced tea syrup
  • 1 shot vodka
  • water
  • lots of ice
  1. Fill a tall glass with ice pour over the syrup and vodka.
  2. Top with water!

Vegan Baileys

Serves 2


  • 3 tbsp Sweetbird Irish cream syrup
  • 4 tbsp thick coconut milk
  • 2 shots whiskey
  • lots of ice
  1. In a tall glass add together all the ingredients but the ice and whisk together.
  2. Fill two short glasses with ice and pour over the mixture.

You can also follow the Syrup Boys on Twitter @cakefox and @veganmonkey who often discuss syrup related things which I like to get involved in. 🙂

There is vast array of syrups to choose from which you can buy here, but they also have a range of smoothies and new products coming out all the time, keep up to date on the latest by following them on Twitter too here.

I have lots more syrups to work through so standby for more recipes!
