Beer Shrub Soda

Carmel notes shine through the fizzy tang of a kolsch-based beer shrub, making this distinctive soda a great alternative to beer.

1 oz. beer vinegar
3/4 oz. simple syrup (made with unbleached cane sugar)
Club soda

Combine vinegar and simple syrup in a shaker. Add ice and shake well. Strain into a 12-ounce highball filled with ice. Top with club soda, and stir.

Beer Vinegar
3 oz. Champagne or cider vinegar that contains the  “mother”
9 oz. beer (Delancey uses Chuckanut Brewery kolsch)

Combine vinegar and beer in a jar. Cover the mouth of the jar with a couple layers of cheesecloth. Put in a dark place, and allow to rest for 4 to 5 weeks, stirring weekly.
