St. Louisan uses simple syrup recipe to raise $23k for area nonprofits


It’s been slightly more than a year since David Schenberg started making Schenny’s Not So Simple Syrup, the secret ingredient in his signature Old-Fashioned cocktails. Schenberg has given 100% of the proceeds to area food pantries and nonprofits and so far, has donated more than $23,000.

The Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry is one of two organizations where the money Schenberg donated was matched by his employer, World Wide Technology.

Recently, Schenberg, who belongs to Congregation B’nai Amoona, turned distribution of the syrup over to Two Men and a Garden. Schenberg will receive a royalty on each bottle sold, the proceeds of which he will continue to donate.
