Lawley’s Shrub Sour

Dorchester’s Boston Harbor Distillery crafts novel spirits which defy categorization. One of their newest cocktails features Spiker’s Shrubs and Lawley’s New England Spirit in a sexy twist on a Whiskey Sour. Lawley’s New England Spirit features molasses and Ackermann Grade “B” maple in a low and slow ferment of two traditional sugar products. A great […]

Spiker's Mock Sangria (M)

Mocktail Monday: Mock Sangria

Cinnamon, pepper, peach, and allspice introduce flavor notes common in red wines, especially Rioja, Shiraz, and Syrah. Shrubs provide concentrated fruit flavor profiles, with added acidity to give your drink a tangy, complex layer. And the fresh fruit slices and berries round out the drink with more eye appeal and flavor. Add a splash of […]

Strawberry Mary (M)

Mocktail Monday: Strawberry Mary

This alcohol-free play on a Bloody Mary features a raw, fresh puree of cucumber, celery, and tomatoes strained and infused with brewed green tea to create a light and clear infusion rather than a ketchupy mess. Assertive spices and Spiker’s Strawberry Rhubarb Shrub finish it off with a fruity-tangy bite. Add vodka to change it […]

Pamplemousse Pisco Cocktail

Pamplemousse Paloma

The Paloma is a classic Pisco cocktail featuring grapefruit (known in France as pamplemouuse). We decided to construct a shrub-based cocktail recipe featuring Patron Pisco and Spiker’s Grapefruit Shrub. The results? Gorgeous!

Chocolate Strawberry Martini

Chocolate Strawberry Shrub Martini

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 […]

Lillet Shrub Sparkler

Lillet Shrub Sparker

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.


Carrie Bradshaw, meet Terry Bradshaw

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. It was Carrie Bradshaw’s drink. I don’t know anything about Carrie Bradshaw. But I do know who Terry Bradshaw is. And […]
