Cucumber & Spice Shrub

Cucumber & Spice Shrub

Regular price $18.00

Loosely based on a family pickling recipe. Local cucumbers and spices strike a balance that is spiced yet sweet and herbaceous yet refreshing. Works as a ready to go vinaigrette/ mignonette or a wonderful alternative to pickle juice in recipes. Can greatly enhance the flavors of your gin and tonic or even make a wonderful light beer shandy. This shrub is an integral part of the "CBM" cocktail at Terra in Eataly Boston.
