Award Winning Bartender Max Messier Releases Signature Line of Cocktail Syrups Branded “Cocktail & Sons”

The liquor industry can claim very few innovators with the enduring creativity and personal flair of Max Messier, who has impressed both patrons and fellow bartenders with his impressive array of unique cocktails.  Since his teen years, Max has been learning about and improving the field of bartending and the service industry. His illustrious career behind the stick includes stints at major watering holes in New York City and New Orleans, which have earned him recognition from the New Orleans Gambit, New York Post, the New Yorker, Time Out New York, Edible Brooklyn and Imbibe Magazine. He has also been a featured speaker at the 2012 and 2013 Manhattan Cocktail Classic and the 2012 Portland Cocktail Week, recognized as one of Black Grouse’s “2012 Distinctive Bartenders of New York City” and was awarded 2013 “Chapter Champion” for the Campari/USBG-NYC Chapter’s “Best Aperitivo” Competition. 

In his latest project, Max has unveiled his signature line of cocktail and soda syrups, which he has labeled “Cocktail & Sons”. These premium syrups are the product of years of intensive study and testing, and are intended to help any consumer produce exceptional quality mixed drinks. “Cocktail & Sons” is created from only all natural ingredients like wild cherry, peppercorns, coriander, dried flowers, sugar and citrus. The initial varieties include:

• Oleo Saccharum which is ideal for enhancing a Gin or Vodka Collins, or for a French 75
• Spiced Demerara Syrup is a staple for the perfect Sazerac or Old Fashioned and adds a jolt to a morning coffee
• Honeysuckle and Peppercorns will enliven a Margarita or Whiskey Sour
• Mint and Lemon Verbena adds the perfect accent to any Daiquiri or Mojito

“Cocktail & Sons” will also offer a website where amateur mixologists can learn how to make cocktails or sodas that should impress any guest.

“Cocktail & Sons” is an ambitious project with enormous promise from an award-winning bartender, but it needs support from the public to succeed. Max Messier invites drink lovers everywhere to join him in making “Cocktail & Sons” a reality by supporting his Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise $10,000.  In return for your generous support, you may receive perks like a Beverage Manual, Shot Glass, Citrus Press, or one of the “Cocktail & Sons” line of syrups.
