Perhaps the most classic recipe in shrub history, our raspberry shrub is gently infused with lemon verbena to make a balanced flavor of bright fruit and herbal notes. The tartness of the vinegar adds to the overall brightness to make an amazingly refreshing shrub. Mix it with vodka, gin, Prosecco, and try some over vanilla ice cream!
Ingredients: Organic apple cider vinegar, raspberries, organic sugar, lemon verbena.
Hudson Standard / Raspberry Verbena
Shrubs, also known as Drinking Vinegars, are syrups made from fruit, vinegar and sweetener. Shrubs make for a creative and versatile cocktail mixer and are equally adept as a stand alone non-alcoholic cocktail, added to seltzer.
The Hudson Standard as a business is a commitment to our region. The ingredients in our bitters and shrubs are, whenever possible, sourced from the Hudson Valley. Working with local farms has been greatly satisfying – these days, there is such an openness to new ideas about crops, production, sustainability and cooperative ventures. We feel The Hudson Standard is a welcome convergence between the cocktail revolution and the “farm to table” movement.
