This post will share with you a super simple apple shrub recipe that will help you transition from sweltering summer days to cooler fall nights.
Shrubs are, in addition to being nice greenery, a simple syrup made from fruit (or sometimes vegetable like rhubarb), sugar, and vinegar. It is very strong straight but divine when mixed with ice, sparkling water, and booze. They are a refreshing departure from the overplayed and saccharine sweet daiquiri or standby margarita. They are super simple to make, even if you don’t cook, and are sure to impress. They are an old-fashioned concoction, popularized during the prohibition era, and ready to be reincarnated on your countertop. My friend Kalisha of www.kalishablair.com and homemade bread baking fame told me about this book, “What to Drink” which is about cocktails served up during Prohibition and I immediately put in my Amazon order. It is awesome, of course, and I’ll be sharing more of the fun recipes within here very soon.
