Sparkling Raspberry Shrub


  • Raspberry Shrub

    • 6 oz (about 1 1/4 cups) fresh raspberries

    • ½ cup granulated sugar

    • 1/4 cup Olivelle Raspberry White Balsamic Vinegar (available in store only)

    • Optional: Add 1 cup of Fresh Basil or Mint Leaves

  • Cocktail

    • Raspberry Basil Shrub (see above)

    • Sparkling wine, chilled


Raspberry Basil Shrub:

Place the raspberries and basil in a glass pint jar and cover them with sugar. Shake the jar vigorously to break up the berries (you may need to stir it a few times with a spoon to help it out), then store in the refrigerator overnight.

Shake the jar again to help dissolve the sugar, then strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer, pressing on the solids to extract as much syrup as you can. Discard the solids.

Transfer the syrup to a glass measuring jar and add 1/4 cup of Olivelle Raspberry White Balsamic Vinegar and stir to combine. Please Note: Shrub will last several months in the refrigerator.

Raspberry Basil Shrub Cocktail:

Pour 1 oz of shrub in the bottom of a champagne flute. Top with 4 oz sparkling wine, garnish with fresh raspberries and a basil leaf. Enjoy!
