bearss LIME shrub
We use the whole fruit - juice, pith, and insanely ultra floral zest of bearss limes to make this shrub. What results is our most intensely flavorful citrus shrub with the highest content of delicious citrus essential oils (definitely give this shrub a shake before using). You can use this shrub in place of Roses' Lime Juice in classic cocktail recipe.
To make a shrub soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water.

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!INGREDIENTS: organic apple cider vinegar, organic unrefined cane sugar, organic bearss limes (grown in Corralitos, California)
