The use of Pear Ginger Infused Vinegar as a Shrub:
Once the New Year festivities are over, most of us promise ourselves that we will abstain from alcohol for a while. This promise does not mean that you have to stay away from all the flavorful, complex drinks. With their sweet and sour flavor notes, Shrubs are a sophisticated substitute for a glass that contains boozy drinks.
For making a delicious yet revitalizing non-alcoholic drink, simply combine juicy pears with spicy ginger and infuse them with the tart apple cider vinegar. The best thing is that you can customize the concoction to entice your taste buds.
The shrub is a traditional way of preserving fruits with the help of vinegar, which has evolved into the creation of ultimately satisfying drinks. The fruit-infused vinegars are now commonly used as a base for cocktails or simply topped with seltzer or club soda. These sorts of drinks that contained fruity vinegar date back to hundreds of years and originated from Turkey.
Shrubs most often are not boozed with alcohol. However, their increasing use in cocktails has made them more and more familiar to the modern world. Shrubs are valued for their complex sweet and sour flavors and distinct fruity aromas. All around the world, these complex drinks are consumed in one way or another depending on the culture and traditions.
How to make and serve a shrub?
Here is a simple way of serving a shrub;
- Take glasses of your choice and add some ice.
- Pour two tablespoons of pear ginger-infused vinegar.
- Pour one tablespoon of simple syrup.
- Add a chilled topping – club soda, seltzer, tonic, flavored bubbly water.
- Adjust the ratio if you prefer a sweeter or sourer shrub until it perfectly matches what you want.
What kind of pears is ideal for infusion?
During winters, you will see those gold foil-covered pears that are abundant and easily available at a reasonable price. This is the best time for getting more creative with pears and using them in shrubs and cocktails.
You can either use a juicer and sweeter pears like Comice or Bartlett or the crispier Concorde. It is better to use fully ripe pears than at this stage; vinegar has maximum sweetness. Therefore you will get a less tart and sweeter shrub naturally.
