This fun candy cane syrup is the perfect hostess gift! Derived from three kinds of mint, this product is delicious in a variety of holiday cocktails.
Candy Cane Martini
1.5 oz. Vodka
1.5 oz. White Chocolate Liquor

Prepare a chilled cocktail glass by drizzling stripes of candy cane syrup down the inside of the glass. Twist the glass as you go.

A Creole take on classic Orgeat - a syrup traditionally made with almonds and cane sugar. We make this version with Louisiana cane sugar and pecans grown on my uncle Kevin’s farm in Southwest Georgia. We toast them in cast iron skillets to create a syrup is fresh and effervescent with notes of orange and rose - perfect for any Mai Tai or old fashioned recipe. We're known to add this syrup to milk punches, and it's also a favorite for both warm and chilled holiday cocktails. Add some in your next batch of milk punch or eggnog!
Made with four different ginger components, this syrup's complexity is striking. While it does have a slight ginger spice, it is not a "punch in the mouth" spicy ginger. The addition of galangal lends a fresh, floral note not typically found in other ginger syrups. Use this syrup to make fresh ginger ale, ginger sours and ginger martinis. This syrup makes a divine Moscow mule. Exercise caution though, they're addicting.

• 2 oz vodka (we used St. Roch®, but any quality vodka will do)
• .5 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
• .75 oz El Guapo® Ginger Syrup
• Club soda
• Mint sprigs, candied ginger or lime wheels, for garnish
Combine vodka, lime juice and ginger syrup in a shaker with a few ice cubes. Gently shake and strain into a copper mug or highball filled with ice. Top with club soda, and garnish with your choice of accouterments.
Made with fresh lime leaves, lime zest, lime juice and lime pulp, this complex syrup is full of bright lime flavor. It packs a punch in cocktails, mocktails and as an addition to sodas and tonics for those who enjoy overt citrusy notes.
We use this most frequently in margaritas, daiquiris, gimlets and sodas, however it is an exceptional replacement for sour mix or simple syrup in myriad recipes. 8.5 oz.
Our mixer sets are made with handcrafted all-natural Shrub District Cocktail Vinegars and El Guapo bitters. Our El Guyapo products are made with love, right here in New Orleans by a woman-owned business.

You have not lived until you've tried this with champagne. Trust.
Our classic Rose Cordial (Τριαντάφυλλα, as its called in Greece) is made with rose hips, rose petals and rose water. The rich pink hue is naturally derived during production. This highly floral, aromatic syrup is exceptional in champagne, but equally at home in cocktails, mocktails, punch recipes and tiki drinks.

NOLA Boards uses only environmentally responsible and renewable woods in making our products. Here is a listing of our most popular types of woods.
Prized for its distinctive rich and robust color, black walnut is commonly used in furniture building. It is grown throughout the eastern and central United States.
Cherry is one of the most highly valued furniture building woods due to its strength, beautiful color, easy workability and the incredibly smooth and glossy finish that it displays when properly sanded. It is grown in the eastern United States, mostly in northern and lake states.
Appearance: Light pink to reddish brown with straight, uniform, fine grain.
Aging Qualities: Darkens significantly with age.
Other Qualities: Highly shock resistant.
Maple is valued by furniture builders for its workability, consistency, hardness, and easy to paint surface. It is grown in all over the United States, but primarily throughout the eastern states.
Sapele is a beautiful hardwood that is often compared to (and even marketed as) mahogany due to its rich reddish brown color and denseness. It is grown in tropical regions of west Africa.
Appearance: Textured reddish brown grain with golden hues. Interlocked grain with a fine uniform texture and a nice natural luster.
Aging Qualities: Color will darken with age.
Other Qualities: Very dense and rot resistant.
Cypress trees are iconic in Louisiana, and are incredibly valuable to furniture and home builders due to their remarkable durability and rot resistance. The “sinker” in “sinker cypress” refers to how these logs were pulled from the bottom of a river.
In the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s, when the preferred method of transporting wood to locations downriver from where they were harvested was by lashing the logs together in a crude raft, it was not uncommon for these rafts to break apart and for some logs to sink to the bottom of the river. The cypress logs would lay there for up to a century!
The outer layers of the wood slowly decomposed, but the lack of sunlight and oxygen perfectly preserved the dense, oily heartwood. Sinker cypress is always found in the rivers and bayous of the southern and coastal United States.
Appearance: Varies due to the different minerals the wood is exposed to depending on where it has been submerged in water. Usually the wood displays a rich, glossy yellow and greenish hue.
Aging Qualities: Darkens to a rich, yellowish brown with age.
Other Qualities: Extremely durable and rot resistant. Oily, almost waxy feel to the wood.
The most widely used hardwood in the United States, white oak is grown primarily in the eastern United States.
Appearance: Creamy white to medium brown heart and sapwood. The heartwood often exhibits an olive colored cast. Has an exceptionally straight and uniform grain.
Aging Qualities: Does not darken much with age.
Other Qualities: Nearly impervious to liquids and highly rot resistant, white oak has been extensively used for ship timbers, barrels and casks.
Wooden cutting boards need to be kept clean and daily maintenance is usually a good scrub with hot soapy water after using. Do not soak your boards or any other wooden utensils in water or they'll crack and warp. Absolutely no dishwasher use! Some people use a very weak bleach solution or hydrogen peroxide to clean their boards after they've been used for cutting raw meat as a precaution against bacterial contamination. Depending on how often you use your boards, maintenance should be at least every couple months.
