Flavored vinegar spritzer.

A non-alcoholic option for your holiday menu. A shrub is a bubbly beverage made with sparkling water and drinking vinegar. This recipe makes one 12-ounce glass.

Serves 1


  • 3 medium ice cubes
  • 1 ounce concentrated or full-strength drinking vinegar
  • 8 ounces no-calorie natural flavored seltzer, like La Croix Cran-Raspberry
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary with the bottom leaves stripped to release aromatics
  • 5 pomegranate seeds, optional


Combine all ingredients in glass and stir. Add optional pomegranate seeds to float on top.

Refrigerate commercially made drinking vinegars after opening.

Calories vary based on drinking vinegar used, but most range from 40-80 calories per ounce.
