What is a Shrub? A shrub is a guy that gets no love from me. Hanging out the passengers side of his best friend's ride, trying to holler me me! Never mind, that is a SCRUB!
A shrub is the use of fruits that are going bad, fermented in sugar, or in this case, can be AmbergoldCBD Full Spectrum Honey, strained and cut with apple cider vinegar. It can be enjoyed as is or in a cocktail or mocktail (non-alcohol beverage) or a vinaigrette.
Amber Gold is Louisiana Honey infused with Colorado CBD. CBD helps with pain, nausea, inflammation, stress, anxiety, and many more. To get your own, go to: https://ambergold-full-spectrum-honey.myshopify.com/
Lets make a shrub!!!
Strawberry AmberGoldCBD Full Spectrum Honey Shrub
4 cups fresh strawberries (I seconds because they did not have to look pretty)
1 cup sugar
1 cup AmberGoldCBD Full Spectrum Honey
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Clean and slice the strawberries. Mix completely with sugar and store in an airtight container for 12 hours.
Pour the strawberry mixture into a sauce pot. Add in AmberGoldCBD Full Spectrum Honey and water. Heat on low to dissolve honey. Remove from heat and smash like to use a potato smasher or the back of a fork. Strain liquid through a mesh strainer into container to cool. Squeeze the remaining strawberries to get as much liquid out as possible.
When cooled, add in apple cider vinegar and chill in refrigerator.
Can be kept up to two weeks.
Let's make a cocktail out of this...

6 oz sparkling white wine (Cava, Prosecco, whatever)
mint for garnish
Pour into cocktail glass and gently stir. Squeeze lime wedge into the cocktail and garnish with lime and mint. Enjoy!
