How To Use A Shrub In Cocktails

To impress even the most discerning palate – simply add a shot of the shrub flavor of your choice to your favorite liquor, top off with bubbly water and mix.

For a real showstopper try adding sliced fruit, a sprig of herbs or combining multiple flavors of our fruit shrubs. Even a with low quality liquor, your beverage will be fantastic, but higher quality liquor is recommended for a superb drink that lingers on the mind even after it’s finished!

Why Choose Our Cocktail Shrubs?

Other mixers utilize cheap processes and low-quality ingredients like white sugar to save money. Our shrubs are hand poured and made in small batches here in Montana. We use locally sourced fruit and honey to flavor our drinks, rather than natural or artificial flavor.

We source the best fruit possible. Our maceration and mixing process is top-notch. Therefore, we preserve the highest quality traditional recipe. This in turn will make your cocktails of professional quality.

A Delicious Shrub Mixer

The first goal when our company was founded was to give you pure flavors that exceed expectations. We are passionate about quality, and this is evident when you take that first sip.

Shivelight produces batches in small quantities to ensure the freshness remains over time. Macerating the fruit leaves bits of the fruit in some bottles. Our old-fashioned approach is what makes us truly stand out and enhances the flavor beyond measure!
