Agave, being native to the hot and arid regions of Mexico (and the Southwestern United States), is a wonderfully viscous sweetener. An Agave syrup tends to be less sweet than honey, and on that note (being a syrup), less viscous as well. Our MONIN Agave Syrup has a solid body, holding strong on the front of your palate, and finishing with a lovely burnt, almost pineapple-like finish.
To demonstrate the similarities to Agave Nectar, we have used our MONIN Agave Syrup in a classic Tommy’s Margarita. Start by adding into a shaker:
45ml Arette Reposado
30ml Fresh Lime Juice
20ml MONIN Agave Syrup
Add ice, shake hard for 8 seconds, then single strain into an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass prepped with a ½ salt rim. Garnish with a lime wheel (place inside glass) and serve.
Experiment with our MONIN Agave Syrup, and let your creativity run free!
