An Australian twist on the traditional Mint Julep, the drink of the Kentucky Derby which would be bourbon, mint syrup and crushed ice served in a frozen silver goblet. This Pineapple Mint Julep shrub brings the pineapple and four kinds of fresh mint from our backyard. Makes a great summer wine spritzer or mixer for vodka or bourbon.
Sweet, earthy and full of tang, shrubs are an excellent source of vitamins, probiotics, support your digestion and are naturally low in sugar.
Shrub is taken from the Arabic word “sharab” or “drink”. When they were brought to 15th century England, they were adapted to medicinal tonics in early apothecaries. They were also popular in colonial America where they became additions to cocktails and in the prohibition era they were used in sodas, making elegant and delicious non alcoholic drinks to enjoy in bars.
Pyewacket's Traditional make their shrubs the traditional way, by preserving their nutritional and probiotic quality, keeping them raw and unpasteurised. While their acidic nature makes them stable for shorter periods - we suggest you pop them in the fridge when they arrive to extend shelf life and preserve flavour.
