Here is the “shrub”
In Colonial times, if you needed a refreshing beverage you would add some of this type of concoction to your water. Think of it as old school Mio water. Water use to be unfiltered from the well. I am sure the 2 cups of vinegar really “freshened ” things up. Now days our tastes run much sweeter, except for those who like kombucha. UGH! Remember I doctored the recipe in the last post because the original was so bitter.
This week we will have Three ways to use this shrub. People keep asking me for an non-alcoholic beverage. This first use will be for you.
The cooler shrub.
One shot of raspberry shrub
One can of 7up ( I use diet)
Pour over ice. Stir. Serve.
One shot Shrub
One shot Cherry vodka
Two shots 7 up
a few mint leaves.
Place all of the above into a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake. Shake. Shake. Pour into iced glass.
This is a bit of a cheat. I used Trader Joe’s Margarita mix with tequila in it.
One shot of shrub
Glass full of margaritas.
Pour shrub over chopped ice. Pour Margarita Mix over. Garnish,
My spouse really loved the margarita version.
Being married to Drinkswithdana does have it’s benefits.
