What is a Shrub?
A shrub is a concentrated syrup that is made with a combination of fruit, sugar, and vinegar. The syrup can be added to mixed drinks or club soda.
- Mixed berries: I used frozen berries. You could use either fresh or frozen.
- Sugar: I used white sugar because that's a key ingredient in a shrub.
- Vinegar: I used apple cider vinegar but you could also use rice vinegar or red wine vinegar.
How to Make a Cold Processed Shrub
Smush mixed berries with sugar in a bowl. Let it sit 24 hours.
Strain and add apple cider vinegar. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved.
Use right away, or wait a week or two and the flavors will meld together and mellow more.
How to Use Shrub
Mix a tablespoon to a few tablespoonfuls of this mixed berry shrub with club soda or mixed with your favorite liquor. You can also add it to homemade kombucha.
How Long Do Shrubs Last?
Shrubs will last for about 6 months in an air tight container in the fridge.
