Orange Ginger Shrub Recipe

Orange Ginger Shrub Recipe

Ah the shrub… also known as a drinking vinegar. Don’t let the name scare you away - this sweet, sour, fruit infused syrup is refreshing when mixed with soda water and killer when used in cocktails.
It takes a little time, but it’s well worth it.


½ cup (125 mL) thinly sliced fresh ginger
2 large oranges
½ cup (125 mL) sugar
1 cup (250 mL) apple cider vinegar
½ cup (125 mL) fresh lime juice (from 4-5 limes)

Put the ginger slices in a 1.5L wide mouth Mason Jar and muddle until fragrant.
Peel the oranges and scrape away all of the white pith.
Add the oranges to the mason jar, and muddle again.
Pour in Lime juice, sugar and vinegar, then close the lid and shake vigorously for 10 seconds.

Leave on the counter and shake once a day every day for for seven days.
Strain the fruit mixture to remove the solids, (which are mighty tasty in a salad...)

Refrigerate and it will keep for 3 - 4 months.

Use in cocktails or over ice with club soda.
