"Healthy Lungs" Apple Herb Shrub

$1.50 Glass Deposit
Impersonated Session Only

For this classic shrub, we infused Bernie's Best apple cider vinegar with locally-foraged yerba santa leaves and fresh thyme, both known for their lung-supporting properties. We added juice from local gravenstein apples along with raw local honey to balance the traditional tang of the oxymel (vinegar-infused medicinal tonic).

A shrub is a traditional fruit concentrate, like a syrup, preserved with vinegar and used to make or flavor beverages. A few ounces with bubbly or still water makes a fabulous drink all on its own (we recommend a dilution of 4 or 5 parts water to 1 part shrub), and there's no reason you couldn't use it as a cocktail mixer if that's your thing! Shrubs can also add zing to jam or salad dressing, and make a wonderful glaze for grilled meats.
