The amazing Cocktail & Soda syrups that we at Elixir Fixer are known for, were created by Jim Higgins, who is a trained chef, culinary artist, and an ace event stylist. His love for food fired up a thriving catering business in Southern California. Later, he brought his creative energy to the Pacific Northwest and was nicknamed “Candle Jim” at the Fremont Market in Seattle.
Well-known for his annual holiday party that centered on a theme and featured a signature cocktail, guests would vie for an invitation. One year, the theme was “Downton Abbey” and the cocktail was “The Downtown Fizz.” While waiting for his guests to arrive, he and his wife sampled his wares and he said, “Gosh, this stuff is so good, I should bottle it!” “Yeah, you should,” said his wife and the seed for this business was born! In 2015, he decided that it was time to return to the kitchen and he began to work on a series of cocktail/soda syrups which were launched in January 2016. Now, you can enjoy them, too!
Elixir Fixer® small batch artisanal syrups are a nod to the great gastronomic flavors and the farm fresh goodness renowned in the Pacific Northwest. All bottled up for your convenience using locally sourced fresh fruit and herbs. Our products are all natural and we do not use any artificial flavors. (The only caveat to this is Liquid Frost (a seasonal syrup for the holidays) which is made with melted candy canes, but tempered with fresh organic mint). We use only the goodness of pure cane sugar and one of our syrups is made with locally sourced honey from Brookfield Farm.
We like to call them “complicated simple syrups” and we take the guess work out of mixing drinks as many of our elixirs contain floral waters and bitters. They are easy to use and consistently delicious. It’s like having a mixologist at your party! Plus, you can enjoy these with or without spirits as they make delicious Italian sodas. Love to cook? Some of our elixirs make great marinades, salad dressings, sauces and desserts.
However, Elixir Fixer didn’t start with syrups, flavors or drinks. It started with people which is what we are all about. For us, the important thing is getting together with friends and family and celebrating life and togetherness. Every time you clink glasses and smile, we are grateful that you allow our products to be part of your life’s events.
Let’s have some fun together!
