This past Tuesday we hosted a local womenâ€™s group at the store for an evening event. We made and served a non-alcoholic White Peach Seltzer Spritzer and a Cranberry Pear Seltzer Spritzer. It was simple, elegant and refreshing. A nice and healthy alternative to soda or other sweetened drinks. The ladies loved it and as a result, we sold a couple of bottles of White Peach and Cranberry Pear White Balsamic.
However, there is a more elevated process for making these drinks and it involves making shrub. A shrub is a drink made from vinegar and fruit along with other ingredients such as alcohol or sparkling water. Think of it almost like a Sangria, without the wine. In this case, the vinegar has a way of both infusing and pulling out the flavor from ingredients which are steeped in it. Get the recipe.
With fresh spring and summer fruits now and soon to be in season there are limitless possibilities of the drinks you can create. Cheers!
