Comfort Drinking

The rise in demand for nostalgic flavours during the pandemic (see our post on ‘Flavour Trends in Uncertain Times’) has inspired the lovely people at Sweetbird to conjure up a range of sweet shop inspired drink recipes. 

Aromas and flavours like peanut butter, toffee and honeycomb evoke the memory of childhood and provide a simple comfort. Sweetbird syrups pride themselves on adding real, authentic flavours to drinks (not just sweetness) so you can take your customers on a trip down memory lane from the comfort of their local coffee shop. 

Here’s a few of our favourite recipes:
