Sweet 'n' Sour
Tart, fruity, and ultra-refreshing, shrubs—sometimes known as "drinking vinegars"—have been around since colonial days. Charlie Berkinshaw and Angela Hsu came up with their organic apple cider versions when Angela was pregnant. She craved a non-alcoholic mixer that had the complexity of a cocktail, was made with real ingredients, and didn't have a ton of sugar. Together, the couple dreamed up five original flavors—blueberry rosemary, chai pear, cranberry hibiscus, lemon mint, and pineapple turmeric—that add tangy zip to cocktails, mocktails, even cooking. Try a dash in sparkling water, salad dressings, or marinades. A great gift for non-alcohol drinkers and home bartenders who love trying new mixers. Comes in a set of five attractive bottles, with recipes for each shrub. Mixed and bottled in Beacon, New York.
