Three years after its start, Happy Camper Cocktails has become a bustling mobile bar company. Since that very first event, we've been fielding requests to bottle our signature syrups so clients can recreate our drinks at home.
With Simple Goodness Syrups, Venise and I are combining our time, talents, and hearts into producing a product we're extremely proud of. Some of you have watched the process unfold via Instagram and saw our bottling process in Elmira, OR at Sweet Creek Foods. (That is a blog post for another day- what an experience! Three 72 gallon batches of simple syrup bottled in one day was an intense 24 hours and included a big lesson in recipe calculations, a flat tire, a 6 hour red-knuckled drive hauling the trailer, and a lot of laughs.) Some of you have been tasters along the way, some of you have shared our story with your friends, some of you have been the constant bees in our bonnets telling us "we want syrups NOW!" and we appreciate it all!
To say there was a learning curve would be an understatement. To say these syrups are the best in Washington state would not be an overstatement, in my humble opinion. We put our hearts and souls into these syrups. We made decisions carefully, even when they were more expensive and meant less profit, because we wanted a product we could be THAT proud of. We bottled a locally and sustainable-grown product with zero preservatives or additives and we did so in a recyclable bottle made in America. Effyeah! We did it for you guys and now you can finally buy them.
Without further ado, here is the link: http://simple-goodness-sisters.mybigcommerce.comYou can buy all 3 of our initial launch flavors online at that link, as well as at the farm this weekend in Buckley at Venise's annual Garlic and Goats Festival.
Thank you for your support along the way, your demand for this product, and your patience as we will inevitably mess up the fulfillment and shipping process a few times. Lord knows, we "grow by doing", and "done is better than perfect," and we "eat this elephant one bite at a time."Joyfully, the Simple Goodness Sisters, Venise and Belinda
