Simply put, a shrub is a vinegar-infused fruit syrup, an old-time mixer for sparkly summer drinks. Tart, sweet, and acidic, a basic shrub uses one part fruit, one part sugar, and one part vinegar, but the possibilities for experimentation are endless. Try this Strawberry Balsamic Shrub cocktail. It’s like drinking summer.

Ingredients

  • 1½ ounces bourbon, gin, or rum
  • 1 ounce strawberry balsamic shrub
  • 1-2 ounces ginger beer
  • Strawberry and mint sprig for garnish
  • Crushed ice

Directions

Combine the liquor and the shrub in a cocktail shaker. (Note: I listed bourbon, gin, or rum in the ingredients; they are all great, but they make very different drinks. Feel free to experiment). Shake vigorously until chilled. Strain into a mason jar filled with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer, and garnish with strawberry and mint sprig.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
