This easy and refreshing summer shrub beverage is perfect for poolside or at any barbecue.
First, make simple syrup if you don't already have some on hand.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
Combine and boil until sugar dissolves. Cool.
Shrub Refresher Recipe
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (6-8 lemons)
- 1/2 cup shrub (I used triple citrus, but play around!)
- 4 cups water
- simple syrup (above)
- extra slices of lemon for the pitcher
- optional: alcohol of choice - we recommend vodka
Mix the simple syrup, lemon juice, shrub, optional vodka, and water together.
Stir and taste, adding more lemon juice or shrub if it's not tart enough for you. Add ice and sliced lemons. Stir one more time and serve!
Two other fun options to play around with would be a splash of Prosecco in place of vodka or using the lemonade to make a summer shandy.
