Modern Mixology: Shrubs [digital]

Ever drink a shrub? Before you google YouTube videos of bonsai trees in vitamix blenders, we’re talking about the flavorful vinegar-based ‘shrubs' showing up all over the happy hour scene. Come learn what all the buzz is about! Shrubs are the perfect base for a seasonal cocktail, and they're also great mixed with soda water for a non-alcoholic treat.

We'll teach you how to create shrub flavors that change with the seasons - from rhubarb to berries to tomatoes and more! Learn the difference between brew methods and when to use a hot process method versus cold. We'll walk you through every step along the way, including how to customize your seasonal produce with a 'zinger' to create an almost endless combination of flavors.

Take away our unique zinger guide, a series of serving suggestions, and the know-how to create shrubs all year round!
