DIY Shrub Syrups - Summer's Perfect Drink

  • Common Good City Farm 300 V St NW Washington, DC United States (map)

Learn how to take the freshest seasonal fruits + veggies and turn them into delicious drinks you can enoy all year long!

Shrubs are a delicious and refreshing way to capture the taste of seasonal produce and turn it into tasty beverages. If you're looking to up your summer cocktail game, or you want to enjoy a special non-alcoholic drink treat, you'll love shrubs!

Join DIY goddess Elle VanDyne for this fun workshop, where you'll learn:

  • the history of shrub making (it's been around for thousands of years!)

  • step-by-step demonstration of a shrub preparation

  • tips for choosing fruits + veggies, plus delish flavor combo ideas

We'll kick off the session with a mocktail party where attendees can sample different types of fruit shrubs, then we'll get our shrub workshop on. Everyone will take home a sample bottle of fresh fruit shrub + a booklet full of shrub info + resources.
