Shrubs! What a miraculous, often overlooked cocktail flavoring. Shrubs! Most excellent during the holidays. Shrubs! Tangy, sweet, sour, bitter. Shrubs!
The sourness of a shrub elevates our sense of taste similarly to salt, which is why this tart cocktail tastes bold yet clean and fresh. A one-two punch of tart bitterness with an aromatic soul. Enjoy with tequila, as shown here, with rye or bourbon -- or as a non-alcoholic mocktail with a touch of soda water in place of the alcohol.
