Celebrate Nat’l Margarita Day (Feb. 22) by trying our trio of recipes featuring the fruity-tart pop of our Tuscan Tangerine or Pineapple Basil Shrub. In all three cases, we are sticking to the classic and classy margarita. No day-glow colors, slush, or chemical-laden mixers allowed. Just natural ingredients in the right proportions.
In honor of our newly released Very Strawberry Shrub — introduced just in time for Valentine’s Day sipping — we’d love for you to try this elegant cocktail. Although we don’t ordinarily care for flavored spirits, we make an exception here because the vanilla notes of the vodka provide a richer overall taste. If desired, you […]
This festive cocktail marries gin, Lillet Blanc, and Proseco to create an elegant cocktail with a blushing rosey glow. Color courtesy of a blend of Spiker’s Shrubs. We think the Tuscan Tangerine is a perfect match for the Lillet Blanc, but our Pear Cardamom would be an excellent change-up.
The Cosmopolitan (and variations thereof) has been around since the early 1900s, but the drink earned its star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame when Sex and the City ran on TV during the 1990s.

We aren’t all that crazy about grenadine (even the homemade kind), and prefer the softer but more interesting tart flavor notes of our Cranberry Orange Shrub or our Sour Cherry Plum Shrub. Either of these shrubs are great alternatives. (Plus, they are […]
