I can’t live without (_______)

  This boozy syrup form Runamok!  My parents gave me this trio of syrup for Christmas and I finally tried it last week. I actually tried a tiny spoonful first and they were great!  I received rum, rye and bourbon.  The syrup is stored in aged rum, rye and bourbon barrels, so you get the…
