Rosemary-Tangelo Shrub

This slightly savory shrub has woodsy rosemary flavors and a hint of citrus. It's great over ice with gin and a bit of seltzer, but it's also refreshing without the booze. More

The Hot Pink

Inspired by my favorite way to eat beets—with horseradish and a cider vinegar dressing—this savory beet shrub is a great match for a juniper-forward gin like Tanqueray. The finished product here has just a touch of heat from the horseradish. More

From the Pastry Dungeon: Mulled Cider Shrub

Sweets Anna Markow Post a comment

The great thing about this particular shrub is that it's ready to consume immediately, as a lot of the vinegar's intensity is cooked out. It's a lot more mild and sweeter than most shrubs, and doesn't require anything but a splash of soda or a shot of your choice of booze to make a tasty beverage. More

5 Essential Low-Alcohol Drinks

Drinks Michael Dietsch 8 comments

These drinks stimulate the appetite without swamping your stomach. They're excellent for parties, because they buzz your guests without totally inebriating them; they cool you down and perk you up without making you feel heavy. And some of them, for good reason, have been around almost as long as carbonation. More

Blackberry Royal

This cocktail from The Spotted Pig is more complex than it looks—this is a cocktail drinker's cocktail, not a syrupy Kir Royale. More

Cocktail 101: How to Make Shrub Syrups

Drinks Michael Dietsch 14 comments

Prior to the invention of refrigeration, a shrub syrup was a means of preserving fruit long past its picking. Shrubs were popular in Colonial America, mixed with cool water to provide a pick-me-up on hot summer days. Today they're still delicious in cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks alike. More

For the rum, choose something dark and, if you want to replicate the Colonial experience, something funky. More

Cold-Processed Shrub

Serious Eats Michael Dietsch Post a comment

This recipe makes about 20 to 24 ounces of shrub syrup, enough to make anywhere from 10 to 20 drinks, depending on how much syrup you use per drink. Store it for up to a year in your fridge. The acid and sugar will preserve the syrup and keep it tasting bright and fresh. More
