Ingredients

  • 1 cup white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • zest of 1 lime just the zest
  • 1 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup sugar I used 1/2 cup of Truvia*

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a pot and heat to medium high.
  2. Once the mixture is boiling and sugar is melted, mix well and simmer for 20 minutes and it starts to thicken.
  3. Strain into a bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Will last for a week in the refrigerator.
  5. Notes: If you want to make this sugar free you can use a sugar substitute to equal 1 cup of white sugar. I used Truvia which required only 1/2 cup.
  6. You can substitute different fruits, vinegars and sugars for those here if you have a favorite combination.
  7. For dressing try 1 tablespoon of shrub + 1 tablespoon of oil + juice of 1 lime. Taste and adjust accordingly.
  8. For a refreshing drink: 2 tablespoons of shrub to 1 glass of seltzer or soda water.
  9. For a cocktail: 1-2 tablespoons of shrub + vodka or gin + soda water (this would also make a great margarita with tequila and lime juice).
