A punch of summer! Bright, fruity, tangy, totally apricot, totally awesome.
This year's batch of apricot shrub is made from a combination of all the apricots we work with: lorna, golden sweet, and blenheim! It's flavorful and tangy and delicious. I think this is our best apricot shrub yet!
To make a shrub soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water.
"If you aren’t already plotting what summer cocktails to mix this into — you should be ... we assure you it’s a must-try."

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.
INNA shrubs can be stored at room temperature, and ideally away from direct sunlight. Shake before using - separation is natural!
