Cocktail Shrubs

All about Cocktail Shrubs

Warning - they get better over time

Our shrubs are cold pressed using locally sourced fruits. A little goes a long way and you only need 1/2 to 1 oz of shrub per drink. Viva's Shrubs come in 12 oz bottles. 

Shrubs have become quite hip in the cocktail culture these days, and you can make some interesting drinks with them. But you know what? A regular, non-alcoholic drinking vinegar (Shrub) and soda is actually a very fine thing. Restorative, in fact.

I was looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic drink, low in sugar and cocktail like. So, I decided to start making small batch fruit shrubs (drinking vinegar) and found that if they were mixed with soda that they were shockingly refreshing, tart and fruity and able to stand up to food and cleanse the plate like wine. We use 'Fever-Tree Soda Water'. It is the best out there and is carbonated spring water with zero calories and carbs. You can get it at Fiesta Farms, whole foods and some Loblaws stores.
