Drinking Vinegar aka Shrubs

We make something called a Shrub and a lot of people have asked what they are and what to drink with them.  Shrubs are essentially drinking vinegar and you can either drink them with soda water for a refreshing non-alcoholic treat or, use them in a cocktail.  We have a fun recipe using one of our favorite gins listed below to get you started!


  • 2 oz. Hendrick's gin 
  • 1oz. 18.21 Bitters Strawberry Balsamic Shrub
  • 2-3 Strawberries
  • St. Germain foam

Muddle the strawberries with the shrub, add gin and shake. Strain over ice and top with St. Germain foam.

To make St. Germain foam: Add 1 cup St. Germain, 1 cup egg whites and 1oz fresh lime juice into an iSi charger and charge it twice with N20 and shake.
