You guys. Where has the summer gone?! I cannot believe that it’s already the middle of August!
I’m always SO excited for summer at the beginning of the season, but by mid-August, once we’ve had a couple of consecutive weeks of crazy hot weather, I’m ready for fall’s cooler temperatures. Do you agree? Or do you kind of hate me for saying that? Either way, there’s definitely something special about the summer season that I wish I could bottle up and save for the cold and dreary days of winter.
Speaking of bottling up summer, let’s make some fruit shrub! In other words, let’s can (or would it be pickle?) our favorite summer fruits so that we can make delicious cocktails with them all year long! I love the sweetly tangy taste of this fruit-infused vinegar in cocktails, but I discovered that it’s also pretty epic when paired with fresh-squeezed lemonade.
So let’s spice up our lemonade with some homemade shrub!Print
