Pineapple Jalapeno Shrub Cocktail
This pineapple jalapeño shrub cocktail has the sweetness of pineapple, the heat of jalapeños and the tang of vinegar. Great with seltzer or vodka for a refreshing summer drink.
Have you ever heard of a shrub drink? I first heard of them a few years ago at a health and natural food expo. Shrubs were used in the colonial times for their high vitamin C content and were sometimes called drinking vinegars. That might not sound all that appetizing but they are really tasty. Trust me on this one. There are 3 main components to a shrub: fruit, sugar & vinegar which make for the classic sweet and sour taste. The cool thing about shrubs is that you can make a variety of different flavors by changing one of the three components. The other cool thing about them is that you can drink them with seltzer water for a refreshing drink or add vodka for a cocktail! Today I used pineapple, jalapeño, honey and vinegar to make this tasty pineapple jalapeño shrub. IT WAS FABULOUS!
