Try A Shrub Cocktail Recipe

Shrubs are incredibly versatile in their application and are not limited to drinking vinegar. They are also incredibly useful when concocting satiating alcoholic cocktails that will elevate your drinking experience to new heights of taste and satisfaction. Drinking vinegar cocktails give you a new perspective on what is possible in bars or during special gatherings by offering a nutritious and delicious alternative to modern standard mixes which are often made with questionable ingredients. There are many vinegar cocktail recipes to choose from when you rely on Shivelight to enhance the drinking experience.

Pure Shrub Beverages

Alcohol has a bad reputation for being unhealthy, but with our shrub cocktails recipes, you will add some powerful health benefits from our shrubs into the mix that put other mixes to shame. The possibilities are endless and are an excellent creative outlet for you to enhance any drinking experience and gain immense health benefits at the same time! Recipes may include selections such as a whiskey shrub cocktail or vodka shrub cocktail depending on your liquor preference. Our options are adaptable to each person’s needs and we have crafted them to pair well with various types of alcohol.

How To Use A Shrub In Cocktails

The process of integrating our shrubs into your cocktail recipes is easy and straightforward with results that constitute an innovative beverage that will impress even the most discerning pallet. Using a shrub 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 shrubs to their maximum potential making each drink unique to itself with the highest quality in mind! The process of mixing our shrubs with alcohol involves adding the flavor of your choice to your favorite liquor and mixing well which results in a stable drink that lingers on the mind even after it’s finished.

It doesn’t stop there because certain elements like adding a fruit slice or even combining our shrubs is a possibility if you’re seeking a truly unique flavor profile not found anywhere in the world. There is a distinct difference between our drinking vinegar and cocktail mixture and they both serve varying 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 if it’s implemented with lower quality liquor, it will still result in a fantastic taste, but higher quality 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 these other mixers utilize cheap processes and low-quality products to save revenue. We operate with a higher standard for your shrub cocktail recipes and believe that your vinegar cocktail 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 compliment all liquors with vastly superior quality and taste that is readily apparent. Shivelight consults with prestigious close-knit growers throughout Montana to create shrub cocktail mixers that are absolutely heavenly for even the most discerning taster.

Another valuable perk to choosing our shrubs is that we offer a range of flavors that are tart and sweet with impeccable precision in complimenting all types of liquor. You can even craft a gin shrub cocktail for a more uncommon approach to mixed drinks, in contrast to 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 grower’s keen eyes are what allows 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!
