I had planned on trying to make some shrubs this summer, but never quite got around to it. So, when I saw this blackberry shrub at my little local market, I snapped it up in the hopes of keeping summer alive for a few more months by way of summer cocktails!
I added a local friend to the mix, Five Wives Vodka and set about making some end of summer/early fall cocktails!
This one turned out really well, so I thought I’d share it with you.Print
