How To Use A Shrub In Cocktails

The process of integrating our fruit shrubs into your adult beverages is easy and straightforward with results that create an innovative experience that will impress even the most discerning palate. Using apple cider vinegar shrubs in cocktails is not a new idea because they have been around for a long time, but at Shivelight we have enhanced the taste of fruit shrubs to their maximum potential, making each drink unique with the highest quality! The process of mixing our fruit shrubs with alcohol involves no prep time – simply add the flavor of your choice to your favorite liquor and mix well, resulting in a stable drink that lingers on the mind even after it’s finished.

The possibilities don’t stop there because certain methods like adding fruit or even combining multiple flavors of our fruit shrubs can create a truly unique flavor profile not found anywhere in the world. There is a distinct difference between our apple cider drinking vinegars and our fruit shrubs cocktail mixtures, and they both serve different purposes. Shrub alcohol is made with a thicker syrup base much like you see with a traditional cocktail mixer, only in our case you can be certain you’re receiving the finest ingredients that mix well. Even a with lower quality liquor, your beverage will still result in a fantastic taste, but higher quality liquor is recommended for a truly superb drink!

Why Choose Our Cocktail Shrubs?

There are many advantages to choosing Shivelight over other competitive brands and one of the main ones is that other mixers utilize cheap processes and low-quality products like simple syrup and granulated sugar to save revenue. We operate with a higher standard for your cocktails and believe that your beverage should perform at its best without compromise. Integrity is of immense value to us which is why we only work with locally sourced ingredients that complement all liquors with vastly superior quality and flavor that is readily apparent. Shivelight consults with prestigious close-knit growers throughout Montana to create fruit shrub cocktail mixers that are absolutely heavenly for even the most discerning taster.

Another valuable perk to choosing our fruit shrubs is that we offer a range of flavors that are tart and sweet with impeccable precision in complementing all types of liquor. You can craft a gin fruit shrub cocktail for a more uncommon approach to mixed drinks, as well as whiskey, vodka, or rum. We stand out from the crowd by utilizing only the freshest squeezed fruit in our shrubs, fruit that has been carefully examined for any signs of bruising or insect damage, which other companies could care less about. Our growers’ keen eyes are what allow us to give you the best fruit possible, and our squeezing and mixing process is top-notch in the industry as we take quality into careful consideration from start to finish!
