Inna Shrub - Cherokee Purple Tomato Shrub
2016 Good Food Award Finalist!
See what NPR says about the cherokee purple tomato here! Inna's tomato shrub works wonderfully in cocktails that tread the line between sweet and savory, and pairs especially well with mezcal or bourbon.
To make a shrub soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water (or to taste).
INNA shrubs can be stored at room temperature, and ideally away from sunlight. Shake before using - separation is natural!
