Fish Tacos with Chile Lime Hummus Slaw

Looking for a new way to dress up a classic fish taco? Try this zippy slaw which marries Spiker’s Chile Lime shrub with a creamy hummus-mayo dressing. The colors are bright and beautiful, the textures are creamy and crunchy. The perfect combination!

Vietnamese Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham)

Spiker’s Chile Lime shrub adds depth and zing to this classic dipping sauce which goes great with spring rolls, grilled shrimp, on a salad, or over cold noodles! For subtle variations, include a splash of Spiker’s Ginger Bite or Pineapple Basil shrub to the mix.

Shrubby Shrimp on the Bar-B

A spicy, rich marinade of coconut milk, Ginger Bite shrub, Asian fish sauce and fresh herbs creates a tasty batch for fresh shrimp. Great as an appetizer or entree. Serve with jasmine rice and steamed or stir-fried broccoli. (Note: This recipe was inspired by a recipe from The New York Times, but we modified some of the steps to streamline the process and incorporate more shrub flavor into the shrimp.)

Ginger Grapefruit Spritzer

Ginger and grapefruit go together beautifully in this mocktail. If you can’t get your hands on Spiker’s Grapefruit Shrub, substitute  an equal amount of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.

Prosecco Shrub Fizz

Sometimes the simplest drinks are the most elegant. Case in point: a nicely balanced blend of Prosecco, Spiker’s Shrub (any flavor), and a twist of lemon or lime. Be sure to choose a dry (brut) Prosecco, because the shrub will add just enough sweetness without taking away the personality of the bubbly.

Crangerine-Lime Vinaigrette

The snappy zest of fresh lime juice and peel blends beautifully with Spiker’s Crangerine Shrub. We love this dressing on mixed greens tossed with fresh pears, manchego cheese, dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts.

 

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 1/2 ounces manchego cheese

Cosmo Fizz

This is a bubbly riff on the classic Cosmopolitan. Pear brandy is preferred but you can substitute apricot or peach.

Lavender Rosemary Rib-eye Steak

Lavender and steak? Flowers and beef? Yep…We’re not joking. The floral, fresh pop provided by lavender provides a beautiful herbaceous balance to a marinade of fresh rosemary, garlic, and black peppercorns. Collectively, it naps a ribeye steak with a wash of flavors reminiscent of open meadows and campfires. Continue reading Lavender Rosemary Rib-eye Steak

Buddha’s Hand Zen Martini

In honor of our limited edition Buddha’s Hand citron shrub, we’re introducing a cocktail recipe which showcases the lemony, floral notes of this unique fruit. It is reminiscent of a Lemon Drop Martini, but the Buddha’s Hand citron has a more unique and lingering flavor.
