This is a cocktail that was ‘invented’ by Divino for Brock’s client party this fall – it was a marvelous introduction to drinking vinegar…also known in the cocktail world as a shrub. You can buy terrific shrubs of all flavors, but why buy when you can make? (says Brock) – so a shrub recipe will be along one of these days, our current favorites are strawberry balsamic and raspberry apple cider. This is easily one of our (new) favorite cocktails…but be careful with it…it softened up a good friend of ours so much that the girls were allowed to do his hair and make-up AND get him in a tutu to go trick-or-treating with us this year! – enjoy!
