The basic recipe for the shrub is :
  • 1 Cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 Cup organic sugar
  • 1 Cup vinegary Kombucha
  • 1 Tbsp fresh mint leaves.
Any vinegar can be used, but this a great way to use up a batch of Kombucha that has gone too long. Enjoying the shrub is the fun part. You can sip it straight, mix it half and half with some mineral water or club soda. Or for the grownups, try your shrub in some light rum as follows.
  • 2 oz light rum
  • 2 oz fruit shrub
  • Splash of orange bitters (optional)
  • Pour into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and serve with a sprig of mint as a garnish
