El Guapo™ Tonic Syrup

$ 24.00


This tonic was created through much research of classic recipes from a time when tonic was for more than just flavor.
Original tonics were created using cinchona bark as it was the source of quinine. It's purpose? To prevent malaria!
The trouble was quinine is extremely bitter. With that in mind sugar was added for sweetness and citrus was added for tartness. In addition other herbs and spices made it into various recipes.

Through research of those original recipes, we offer this for your drinking pleasure. Is this what tonic tasted like "way back when"?  It is close if not dead on accurate.  AND IT IS DELICIOUS! Full of fresh bright citrus and slightly floral flavors with a lingering but pleasant bitterness. This is what your gin and tonic was meant to taste like! 

8.5 Fluid ounces
Contains: Cane sugar, cinchona bark (quinine), limes, lemons, grapefruits, oranges, lemongrass, ginger, grains of paradise, & a few other secret herbs & spices.

Our Tonic is highly concentrated and very thick to give you the best value as well as the best flavor on the market.
To make tonic water simply add 1/4 to 1/2 of an ounce of Tonic Syrup to 3 ounces carbonated or sparkling mineral water.

About El Guapo™:

10% of all profits will be donated to helping those who have served


In 2014 we are renewing our commitment to help those who have served our country. El Guapo Bitters will donate 10% of our profits to a great organization that supports the men and women of our armed forces. We will donate a full 10% of profits to benefit the Semper Fi Fund for wounded Marines. As a veteran I am committed to helping those who have served. I myself served in the Marine Corps. Which was where I picked up the nickname El Guapo. I am technically a disabled vet. But, I was lucky. I came out with a couple of bad knees and a little hearing loss. Some of my brothers and sisters in arms have not been so fortunate. Together maybe we can make a difference for them.
