Either option makes a tart, delicious mixer for beverages both adult and non-alcoholic.
Add a splash to champagne, to pink up the bubbly. Make the worlds’s best Cosmo, or pair it with gin or bourbon and a splash of sparkling anything. Versatile, ruby, delicious.
Use your imagination to add color and flavor to sparkling water, apple cider, champagne, cocktails, or anything your heart desires. A shrub makes a delightful addition to salad dressings; the syrup without vinegar can be poured over ice cream, baked goods, or roasted vegetables.
Fill a glass (or handsome canning jar) with ice. Pour over it:
2 oz gin or bourbon
1 oz cranberry shrub.
Top with sparkling water.
Add 3 drops orange bitters, if desired.
Top with sparkling water, and garnish with a rosemary sprig and some roasted cranberries.
