Crescent Simples Tasting

Enjoy a Saturday afternoon of sweet drinks with Crescent Simples! We’ll be trying out their simple syrup flavors, mixed with your choice of soda water or Carter Mountain “Sunrise” Sparkling Chardonnay.

Come join the fun and raise a toast to peach season! The tasting will last from 1–4 PM on July 13 with no registration required.

About Crescent Simples

Megan and Bill, co-founders of Crescent Simples, make delicious, preservative-free simple syrups from fresh fruit, herbs, and raw sugar. In fact, their “Apple Spice” syrup is made with Carter Mountain Orchard apples!

The couple’s love of unique cocktails stems from their background as bartenders in New Orleans. In those days, it was common for friends and bartenders to visit Megan and Bill for a delicious cocktail made with one of their homemade syrups. Now, the two share their syrups with over a dozen Virginia retailers, including Carter Mountain Orchard and Chiles Peach Orchard!
