Our seasonal shrub, Pear Maple Cardamom, pairs handsomely with a hard dry cider, bourbon, or hot tea. Both cocktails and mocktails benefit from the fruity and herbaceous flavors of shrubs. Try Pear Maple Cardamom Cider, made with or without spirits, as a festive brew for get-togethers.
½ ounce RR&Co Pear Maple Cardamom Shrub
2oz ginger beer
4oz dry hard cider
fresh rosemary sprig
Measure bourbon and RR&Co Pear Maple Cardamom Shrub into a rocks glass. Add ice, as desired. Pour hard cider and ginger beer into glass. Blend drink with rosemary sprig (important to impart the essence of rosemary in drink). Leave rosemary in the drink for both flavor and garnish.
*For a sans spirit option, try substituting sparkling apple cider for hard cider and lemon sparkling water for the bourbon.
