Hi everyone

Hoping to get a little insight here!
So I live in Australia and a well known organisation is offering grants up to $20,000 for product ideas within the hospitality industry. I've had this idea rattling around the back of my head for years so thought I'd kick myself if I didn't apply.

It's a long application and I've had to record a 5 minute video explaining my idea. Problem is, I still don't have a name for it.

The product is essentially flavour enhancing drops that would come in bottles much like bitters. I envisage they would be used mostly for vodka or gin and soda drinks Just one or two drops and the flavour is transformed. I won't go into too much details as I've spent today writing almost 4000 words on it! But I really need hep thinking of a name.
Originally I was going to go with Spirit Drops but realised that won't look too good if being used in a non-alcoholic drink of a mocktail.
Fruit Drops sounds too plain. Essence Drops sounds like a shampoo.

I thought maybe simply "A drop of flavour" so the bottle would just say "A drop of apple" "A drop of raspberry" so when ordering drink you'd simply ask for "a vodka soda with a drop of apple"

Any input would be amazing! I have 5 hours to submit my idea and after weeks I'm still not set on a name. Thanks in advance.

A drop of would totally work, I'd probably leave off the 'flavour' bit. Along the same lines, maybe Addo? So Addo Cherry.

Try synonyms of words, so drop = bead, bubble in one definition or drop = dash, pinch, sprinkle, splash, taste, hint.

Essenco (essence of)?

There is similar drink available over here called Bitter Union which comes in various flavours, I add it to sparkling water.

How about 'something' burst? As it gives a burst of flavour? Bubble burst?

FraughtwithGin · 27/09/2020 14:28

Meaning a touch of...
Slightly exotic/French

Try imagining what the advertising board at the pub would say... I can see it saying “Splash Flavours” or something and listing the available ones underneath.

People have to be comfortable ordering out loud too... vodka soda with a Raspberry Splash please.

Tipple maybe? Is that too alcoholic? Maybe Ripple?

Vodka soda with a lime ripple please. What Ripple flavours do you have?

How about something like ‘embrace’ then you could have embrace raspberry or embrace blueberry?
