Dogfish Head - Blueberry Shrub Vodka Cocktail Ready to Serve
Wait, isn’t a shrub what you decorate your front door with? Yes, BUT it is also an old-timey drink made from dark fruits macerated in sugar and vinegar. This sweet, yet acidic syrup was traditionally mixed with water or soda water for a flavorful refresher.
This here cocktail was inspired by the bartenders at our James Beard Award-nominated bar program at Chesapeake & Maine. This scratch-made cocktail begins with our vodka distilled with blueberries. It is then macerated with lightly sweetened balsamic and red wine vinegar to create a blueberry shrub vodka which we then blend with soda water.
The ensuing deep, burgundy-colored libation is juicy and subtly sweet from the blueberries, with a slightly sour and complex fruity character from the vinegar.
So ditch the fancy glassware, mixing equipment and enjoy cold, straight from the can!!
