Hi Kickstarter! Fresh off the heels of our last project for the Neat Ice Kit, we're back with another cocktail-related project.
Simple Syrup is arguably one of the most important ingredients to stock in your home bar, as it is used in countless cocktails. Simple Syrup is indeed simple, containing only two ingredients: sugar and water.
You can buy Simple Syrup at any grocery store, but why would you pay for sugar water? Our kit makes it stupidly easy to mix and store your own Simple Syrup. And, using our kit allows you to experiment with various sugar types, which can add a different dimension to your cocktails.
What is Included in the Simple Syrup Kit?
First, the bottle. Lines are printed on the outside to indicate where to fill the sugar and water to get the ideal 1:1 ratio. Additional measurements are included if you prefer a different quantity or ratio.
We include a funnel to make it easy to add the ingredients to the bottle. Once the ingredients are added, just cap, and shake. No need to boil the water, the sugar will dissolve at room temperature.
The real triumph is the pour spout and cap combination. The problem with just reusing some old bottle is the cap tends to get sticky and crusty over time. We hunted far and wide to find the perfect pour spout. It is designed in a way where the liquid never gums up the spout. It's quite clever. It also allows for a slow pour, which is crucial since Simple Syrup is usually added to cocktails in small amounts. A cap is included for storage and when mixing the ingredients.
Lastly, a wet erase marker is included. Simple Syrup lasts about a month, so you can use the marker to indicate on the bottle when you made that batch, as well as the type of syrup you created.
To sum up, each Simple Syrup Kit includes:
- A glass bottle, with baked-on ceramic ink measurements.
- A pour spout and cap.
- A plastic funnel.
- A wet erase marker.
(Sugar and water are not included in the kit).
Selecting the right bottle and pour spout / cap was no small task. We hunted far and wide, and tried several variations in a variety of materials, to find the right combination that would be up for the task. We have been using the bottle and spout we picked for a few months, and it works great!
Why We Need Your Help
In order for us to be able to move forward with this project, and make it cost effective, we need about 1000 pre-orders. We can't do this without your help, so if you are interested in bringing your cocktail game to yet another level, hit the green pledge button on the right.
Thanks for checking out our project!
Risks and challenges
This is our 5th(!) Kickstarter project. Creating and shipping a product to customers is something we are accustomed to. That said, of course there will be unexpected delays, and we have built that into the timeline. We are very confident we will be able to deliver this project, as described, to our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
