concord GRAPE shrub
Oh concord grapes, how do you taste so magical? I can't explain it or describe it - that very peculiar particular unique flavor.
Due to limited availability of fruit, we were only able to produce a small amount of this shrub, hence the "LIMITED EDITION" label. Please note that LIMITED EDITION shrubs are only available from our website (and our Emeryville kitchen shop).
To make a shrub soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water (or to taste). For shrub cocktail recipes, go here.
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!
