Our tomato shrub works wonderfully in cocktails that tread the line between sweet and savory, and pairs especially well with mezcal, tequila, bourbon, and beer. See below for our michelada recipe.
Wondering what's the difference between the flamme TOMATO shrub and the cherokee purple TOMATO shrub? The flamme is more fruity, more bright, with tropical notes. The cherokee purple is more savory, more deep, with a classic heirloom tomato flavor.
To make a shrub soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water.
A hot summer day calls for micheladas! Here’s my recipe:
- Wipe the rim of a pint glass with a lime wedge, dip into a coarse salt/chili mix
- into the glass: ice, 1 oz tomato shrub, 3 dashes hot sauce (I use cholula), 3 dashes worcestershire sauce, some of that salt/chili mix, and a squeeze of lime. Mix it up.
- add beer, stir. Sprinkle MORE salt/chili mix on top (ok, I like it spicy). And enjoy!!
Shrub (also known as drinking vinegar) has a long tradition as a refreshing beverage going all the way back to the Colonial Era, but it actually originated a thousand years ago in the Middle East! Like our jams, shrubs are an excellent way to preserve the harvest of our gorgeous fruit when it is at it's most perfectly ripe. The vinegar and sugar both help to preserve and capture the fleeting fruit flavors while balancing each other out to make a sweet-tart syrup that a perfect base for a drink. Shrub is essentially a fruit-vinegar-sugar syrup. Mixed with sparkling water it's the most refreshing drink we've ever had. Of course, it's also great in cocktails.
