This was supposed to go up on July 1, what happened?! I don’t know. I was on vacation…

The shrub (shrubs?) is (are?) my new favorite summer drink, and it doesn’t evenĀ need to have any alcohol.

Of course, you can always add alcohol.

I thought I invented a drink with soda water and apple cider vinegar, but there is nothing new under the sun. Shrubs are made by muddling berries, mint leaves and sugar, then mixing them with soda water and apple cider vinegar to taste.

Here is an anti-recipe for shrubs that is more complicated than what I did, if you’re into that sort of thing. Really, I just muddled blueberries and sugar and I loved my drink, so I don’t know about making syrup and whatnot…

It is very easy, very pretty, and very refreshing. My best friend is having a baby shower soon and I think I will make a few pitchers of shrubs to go around.
