DIY Shrub Workshop with Elle VanDyne

DIY Shrub Workshop with Elle VanDyne

Instagram was being screwy last night, so I'm reposting our #thirstythursday feature today... Enjoy! And happy Friday! 🍹
*****
It's #thirstythursday again, and I promised you a tasty non-alcoholic option this time. So, welcome to my summer beverage obsession: shrubs. Are you familiar with these delish drinks?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had my first shrub mocktail last year at @diowinebar and fell in love. The sweet-tart-fruity flavors are so good, I didn't even miss the alcohol! But if you really want a cocktail kick, shrubs pair perfectly with just about any basic liquor as well.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The word "shrub" comes from the Arabic word 'sharab' meaning 'to drink', and versions of this beverage have been around for hundreds of years. It's made a recent comeback, and I predict it'll continue gaining popularity as more people seek out ways to cut alcohol.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Annnnnd... it's super-easy to make your own. I'll even be teaching a shrub workshop at @femmefataledcon July 15! Come join me to learn more about how to preserve the tastes of summer fruits + veggies all year long with shrubs. We'll be sampling them before class, and you'll go home with a bottle of your own! Click "Get Tickets" on our profile to learn more.

What fruit flavor would you like to see as a shrub? Some of my ideas to try this summer are blueberry-beet, strawberry-basil, and cherry-mint.

Cheers!
