Raspberry Basil Shrub


  • 1 1/4 cups fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries), plus more for garnish
  • 1 cup basil leaves, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup Fusitni's Cranberry Pear balsamic vinegar
  • sparkling wine


Adapted from withspice.com


Step 1. 

Place the berries and basil in a glass pint jar and cover them with sugar. Shake the jar vigorously to break up the berries,  then store in the refrigerator overnight.  

Step 2. 

Shake the jar again to help dissolve the sugar, then strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing on the solids to extract as much syrup as you can. Discard the solids.  Transfer the syrup to a glass measuring jar and note the volume. Add ⅓ of that volume of Cranberry balsamic vinegar and stir to combine (for example, if you have 3/4 cup of raspberry syrup, add 1/4 cup of vinegar). The shrub will last several months in the refrigerator.  Pour 1 oz of shrub in the bottom of a champagne flute. Top with 4 oz sparkling wine, garnish with fresh berries and a basil leaf. Enjoy!
