To cap off our month of Summer shrub features, we're hosting a shrub cocktail workshop to demystify this delicious digestive ingredient.

What is a shrub, anyway? You see them on cocktails lists and health food aisles, but what is this sour ingredient with the weird name? The answer is surprisingly simple: fruit, sugar, vinegar, water. Colonial Americans used shrub recipes to preserve the extra fruit at they had at harvest time, and now bartenders use them to add another layer of flavor to their drink recipes.

Learn how to use them and why you should, at our Summer Shrubbin' cocktail workshop. Guests will make a shrub with the help of the instructor, and learn the techniques for using shrubs in cocktails, make cocktails of their own, and try a variety of cocktails with and without shrubs in order to taste the difference. $40 admission includes all of the above. Space is limited.
