Sage and Cranberry Shrub

Prep Time 5 hours


  • 1 Lb Fresh Cranberries
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 Cup Pure Cane Sugar
  • 1 Cup Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Fresh Sage Leaves


  • Place berries and water in a saucepan and cook on medium-low until the berries pop and become soft, about 10 minutes. Place the cranberries in a quart jar and add sugar. Put a lid on the jar and shake well until well combined. Let the cranberry and sugar mixture sit for 5 hours. It will become a syrup. Add De Nigris Apple Cider Vinegar and sage leaves then cover and shake. Let sit for 24 hours, shaking occasionally. Strain out the solids and pour the syrup into a clean jar. Store in the refrigerator. Make a Sage and Cranberry Shrub cocktail by mixing 2 ounces of syrup with a cup of club soda and two ice cubes. Add 1 ounce of vodka for an adult version.
