With the holidays right around the corner, we have no time to be under the weather. Indulge in this immune-boosting warming beverage for a helpful treat at the end of a long week. Cheers!
Vinegar-based cocktails have a long history in cuisines throughout the world, but the shrub truly came into its own in America throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. At that time, they were drunk not only in the cities and taverns, but loved by workers in the fields.
We've taken the fall harvest as our inspiration for the Autumn Shrub, made using Domaine de Provence® Apple Cider Vinegar as its base. This exceptional vinegar is handmade in the Champagne region of France using primarily local ingredients. Each batch is twice fermented, filtered, and aged in small oak barrels for crisp, clean flavors.
¼ C Domaine de Provence® Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ C Simple Syrup
¼ C Apple Cider
4 oz Gin or Vodka
Ice / as needed
In a mixing glass, stir the vinegar, simple syrup, cider, and spirit together. Place two lemon slices in the bottom of each glass, then fill each glass ¾ with ice. Divide the mixture between the four glasses, stir with the ice, and serve.
This boozy pick-me-up is a perfect warming, welcoming beverage after long travels on a cold day.
For our Jansal Valley® Pumpkin Butter, sweet Cinderella pumpkins are whipped to a butter-like consistency and spiced with cinnamon, clove, and cardamom, perfectly capturing the flavors of fall. Use it as a spread on toast or pancakes, as a pie filling, or mixed with Parmesan as a filling for homemade ravioli.
Here we've used it in a delicious warm beverage, perfect to welcome guests throughout the holiday season. Cheers!
