Cranberry - Pepper Shrub Cocktail

is one of my absolute faves. It's refreshing, tart, slightly peppery + has subtle hints of orange that transition lovely into spring-time drinks. I love the act of making a shrub, if you've never done one before don't worry! They are pretty easy to make (at least this one is) + they add so much great flavor to any drink (not just alcoholic ones). Enjoy!!

*Notes* It's based off of this recipe, with slight adjustments to portion, as I did not make this a punch like the recipe suggests. 


| Makes 1 drink | 

  • 6 oz Sparkling Wine *I used Prosecco
  • 3 oz Cranberry-Pepper Shrub 
  • 6 dashes of Orange Bitters
  • 1/2 Orange for garnish
  • Ice for serving

Cranberry-Pepper Shrub

  • 2 cups Cranberries
  • 1 tbsp Whole Black Peppercorns- lightly crushed
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar 


Step 1

First, we need to make the shrub a day ahead, or in the morning so it can chill for at least 8 hours. Stir to combine all the shrub ingredients in a saucepan on medium high. Cover, stir occasionally, + let it simmer for 10 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, uncover + let it cool to room temperature. Transfer to a container + chill for 8 hours or overnight. 

Step 2

To finish the shrub strain the mixture twice through a fine mesh strainer into a mason jar or airtight container. At this point the shrub should be clear or remnants + smooth.

Step 3

To make the cocktail: pour 6 oz sparkling wine into a mixing glass, then add 3 oz of shrub + 6 dashes of orange bitters, stir gently to combine.

Step 4

To serve: Pour mixture into your favorite cocktail glass, garnish with an orange slice + crushed ice. Drink it up!
