Little Bottles of Natural Goodness 

Celebration Martini

Posted on February 08, 2017 by Bickford Flavors

As part of our 100th anniversary celebration, we've crafted a cocktail that you can customize with your favorite Bickford Flavor!

For each serving, you'll need:


  1. Chill martini classes in a freezer or by filling glasses with ice to chill while you prepare the cocktail. Dump the ice before adding the cocktail.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with 1 cup crushed ice. Add vodka and a drop or 2 of Bickford Flavor of choice and shake well. Add more flavor, to taste.
  3. Strain and pour into chilled (but empty) martini glass and top with Champagne.
  4. Garnish with strawberry or fruit of choice.

Almond Champagne Fondue Recipe

Posted on February 19, 2014 by Bickford Flavors



  • 8 ounces Gruyere cheese
  • 4 ounces Swiss cheese
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 5 ounces Brie cheese
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 3 tbsp Bickford Champagne Flavor
  • ½ tsp Bickford Almond Flavor
  • Dash grated nutmeg
  • (For dipping: prepare apple slices, cubes of French bread)




Shred Gruyere and Swiss cheeses using a hand grater (be sure to use natural, aged cheeses, not pasteurized processed forms of either). Toss together in a medium mixing bowl with the cornstarch. Cut rind off Brie and cut the soft cheese into small cubes.  Heat white wine and Bickford Champagne Flavor in a heavy, three-quart saucepan. Bring just to a simmer over medium heat; do not boil. Reduce heat and gradually add shredded cheeses, then Brie cubes, stirring constantly in a zigzag motion, until cheese is melted. Add Bickford Almond Flavor and grated nutmeg. Continue stirring and simmer until the fondue is smooth, thickened and velvety, about 5 to 8 minutes. Do not boil or try to hurry this process.

Serve in a fondue pot and keep warm over a canned heat burner or candle. Use apple slices and French bread for dipping.
