Blueberry Ginger Shrub
Want the perfect drink for get togethers & parties? A Fruit Shrub is non-alcoholic, all natural, healthy and tastes like a mix between kombucha and a cocktail. I love how refreshing a shrub is and its a great alternative to drinking soda.
I usually make a big bottle of shrub syrup and then it lasts me for months. When people come over I don’t have to worry about buying any other beverages as long as I have sparkling water. The best part is you can use any type of fruit and herbs to create all kinds of flavors.
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. Let sit for a day and then strain out the pulp. I use a nut bag. If you want to skip the straining step you can use fruit juice instead of fresh or frozen fruit that way it wont have any pulp.
I love using strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Some herbs I have used are basil, rosemary & thyme. Ginger is always my favorite because it give it an extra kick.
1 cup of wild blueberries, fresh or frozen (regular are okay too)
½ cup of water
½ cup raw apple cider vinegar
⅓ cup of honey
½ tablespoon fresh grated ginger
