Strawberry Pineapple Shrub
Use a little sugar and vinegar to create a shrub with strawberry and pineapple. Shrubs are a sweet-tart syrup that can be mixed with sparkling water or used in a cocktail. They make good use of fruit that might be aging quickly on your countertop and are very simple to make. This is the best beginner shrub I have made and is a beautiful pink color.

  • How to make a juice drink. Strawberry Pineapple Shrub - Step 1
    Step 1

    Chop the fruit and place in the bottom of a large jar. You can fit it all in a quart jar, but I prefer to use my half gallon and have plenty of room in case my fruit isn’t chopped small enough to fit nicely in a quart.

    Step 2

    Add sugar to the fruit and toss in jar to coat. Add lid and leave for 24 hours.

  • Step 3

    Shake and then add the vinegar. Screw the lid on tight and leave on the countertop for about a week, shaking or stirring daily. After the week has passed, strain using a cheesecloth-lined colander or strainer if you care about absolute clarity or just a strainer if you aren’t particular.

  • Step 4

    The shrub is now ready for mixing! Store in the refrigerator until mixing in the following ways.

    Strawberry Pineapple Cocktail:

    1 part tequila

    1- 1 ½ parts strawberry pineapple shrub

    3 parts sparkling water

    over ice.

    Or as a refreshing addition to sparkling or plain ice water, add 1 to 3 tablespoons shrub.
