Inna Shrub: Shrub has a long tradition as a refreshing beverage going all the way back to the Colonial Era, but it actually originated a thousand years ago in the Middle East!
Shrubs are an excellent way to preserve the harvest of our gorgeous fruit when it is at it's most perfectly ripe. In making our shrubs we use the whole fruit (not just the juice), and cold-cure the shrubs to maximize depth and complexity of flavor. The vinegar and sugar both help to preserve and capture the fleeting fruit flavors while balancing each other out to make a sweet-tart syrup that a perfect base for a drink. Shrub is essentially a fruit-vinegar-sugar syrup. Mixed with sparkling water it's the most refreshing drink we've ever had. Of course, it's also great in cocktails.
To make our shrub into a fruit soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water (or to taste).
Inna's Salt Preserved Meyer Lemons are made with less salt than traditional preserved lemons - they are meant to be enjoyed in their entirety: rind, fruit, and juice! (No need to rinse off excess salt as with traditional preserved lemons - simply use them as they are).
A punch of summer! Bright, fruity, totally apricot, totally awesome.

Perfect to add a bit of spice to the rim of your Ginn (or Vodka) Martini, Bloody Mary, Michelada, Margarita, Daiquiri or... you tell us!
The earthiness of the fig is a perfect compliment to the bright acidity of the vinegar. This versatile shrub is be great in sodas, cocktails...
This potent shrub mixed with soda makes a great substitute for ginger ale.
Inna Shrub's newest shrub! This one is like a grown up Squirt soda - not too sweet, intensely grapefruity, with a touch of bitterness!
This Meyer Lemon Shrub is like a lemonade kicked up a few notches on the complexity and nuance scale. Because we use the entire fruit there's a great balance of sweet, tart, floral (from the zest), and a touch of bitterness (from the pith).
Ultra floral, distinct quince aromas. This is a flavor you smell as much as taste. Very complex, totally sophisticated.
