You know I’m a sucker for shrubs. And while I certainly enjoy making my own, sometimes it’s best to leave the dirty work to the professionals. That’s where Shrub & Co comes in. I first heard about Shrub & Co from my friend Amy Hamilton from Just Relish catering who works out of a neighboring commercial kitchen space here in Berkeley. One sip and I was hooked. I immediately went out and bought every flavor I could find. Even though the holidays are in the rearview, I just can’t stop sipping the cranberry shrub with douglas fir. I find it goes perfectly with a little St. George terroir gin. Although, here I kept it non-alcoholic with just a splash of sparkling water and a candied cranberry garnish.
