Agave Syrup

What is agave syrup? Agave nectar is known for its delicate sweetness with a small hint of caramel flavor.

It is slightly sweeter than honey and cane sugar, but it has a mild, clean taste and quick-dissolving properties that mix well with coffees, teas, and lemonades. Though you're sure to make each drink a little bit sweeter, this flavoring syrup enhances rather than overpowers the original flavor of your favorite beverages, giving them just the right amount of sweetness! Tempt your customers with a cool and refreshing agave iced tea in the summertime, or use it in recipes.
