Shrubs are concentrated drinking vinegars. These vinegars can be used to enhance a cocktail, added to sparkling wine for a mimosa alternative, or mixed with club soda to create a non-alcoholic shrub soda. (Shrubs also have a great application in the kitchen as a vinaigrette or a marinade. )
Vinegar in cocktails basically has the same effect salt does in food – it enhances the flavors. As for shrub sodas – these are a healthy (and more flavorful) alternative to a regular soda pop and provides you with an exciting non-alcoholic drink. Depending on your preference – only 0.5 to 2 oz are needed per beverage. No more need for a boring beverage.
Flamingo Pride - Strawberries & champagne. Aromas of pink peppercorn are met with flavors of sweet strawberry and pleasantly tart champagne vinegar.
Dilly Datil - The St. Augustine native pepper, the Datil pepper, provides a perfectly pleasant spice to this refreshing cucumber shrub. The fresh cooling cucumber flavor and the subtle Datil pepper spice on the nose and finish are brought together with the crisp flavor of the rice wine vinegar.
Pomegranate Apple Jam - Great balance of tart pomegranates with the candy sweetness of apples. Pomegranate seeds in the jam add a nice crunch and texture to each bite.
