Michigan Apples make a Refreshing Apple Shrub Syrup!

Refreshing Apple Shrub Syrup
It's heating up outside, and this apple shrub syrup, or drinking vinegar, infused with mint and fennel is a refreshing way to beat that heat. To enjoy, combine 1 part shrub syrup with 3 to 4 parts sparkling water and serve over ice. Shrub syrups are also a fun and creative way to bring a signature cocktail to life—it is wedding season, after all!

A way of preserving fruit after the harvest in Colonial times, sweet and tangy drinking vinegars are a fantastic way to enjoy the pure spirit of your favorite fruit any time of the year. Fresh herbs and whole spices will add another layer of flavor to your syrups, as will experimenting with different types of vinegar.

If you're intrigued by this old-timey drink that has made a resurgence over the past 5 years or so, I hope that you'll try it for yourself! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
