The Local Palate Marketplace is your go-to source for Southern-made gourmet foods, specialty ingredients, and small-batch snacks from artisan makers and small business throughout the South. While our store holds a trove of cooking ingredients and snacking goodies, it also boasts a rotund assortment of items for your bar cart. The Local Palate Marketplace bar sections ranges from mixers, syrups, bitters, and garnishes—and it all has a decidedly Southern twist.
Because these products are made in a smaller scale, you can expect flavors that are fresh-fruit forward and in out-of-the-ordinary flavors, such as blood orange, caramelized fig, hibiscus-honeycomb, and more.
Use Virginia-made syrups to turn ordinary spirits into dazzling cocktails, or use fancifully flavored fresh fruit cordials to create beverages that can stand with or without alcohol. Diversify the standard old fashioned or sazerac with exciting bitters that come in flavors, such as smoked orange, spiced cherry, and even chocolate. And if you want a drink with little effort on your part, mixers do all the heavy lifting for creating a margarita or Bloody Mary.
