Drink of the Week: BB Gun Cocktail

BB Gun CocktailTangy, vinegar-based shrubs help streamline the cocktail-mixing process by infusing fresh flavor, acid and sweetness into the glass in just one dose. And with the last of summer’s berries still hanging on, we’re making a big batch of this blackberry shrub to use long after summer official says goodbye. Shake it with aged rum in today’s Drink of the Week, or simply stir it with seltzer.
1 1/2 oz. aged rum
1 oz. blackberry shrub
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup (1:1)
SeltzerTools: shaker tin, strainer
Glass: Collins
Garnish: fresh mint, lime wheel
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake to chill, strain into a Collins glass filled with fresh ice and top with soda. Garnish.
Blackberry shrub: Combine ½ cup of sugar and 2 cups of blackberries and let the mixture sit overnight. Add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and let the mixture sit for another 24 hours. Strain and store in the fridge until use or up to 1 month.
