Tastes Around the World Ohio
There are just a few more shopping weeks left for this holiday season, and if you’re still worrying about what to buy a hard to gift family member, consider putting together a basket of global tastes. This works especially well for traveling foodies in your inner circle. You can personalize the basket to destinations the person has been to or maybe has on their bucket list by purchasing items online from local companies. To represent the Buckeye State in your basket, consider simple syrups made by two busy moms in Columbus, Ohio.  
ROOT 23 is all-natural flavor infused simple syrups made with organic cane sugar and local ingredients from farmers in the region. They can be added to liquors to make an easy cocktail, be used to mocktails or even used in food recipes. From pear rosemary to maple cinnamon to cucumber habanero, there are a variety of flavors. ROOT 23 also has winter assortment gift packs that are perfect for our basket idea (they also work great as stocking stuffers). 
One way to make the syrups stand out even more, is to include some recipes for how to use them. If you have kids, have them help by printing out the below recipes and then letting your little ones adorn with stamps or crayons.
