Recipe: Whiskey Shrub Cocktail with Persimmon Vinegar

Persimmon Vinegar can even make a great addition to a cocktail. Our friends at The Good Lion created this whiskey sour recipe. It's delicious! 

And you can keep the shrub syrup to serve with sparking water later (or for the kids). 




Juice from Citrus

Persimmon Vinegar



Egg Whites 

Orange Wedge (garnish) 

Grated Nutmeg 


First, make a simple syrup: 

  • 1 part water
  • 1 part sugar

Heat on the stove until the sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. 

Let the simple syrup cool and save some for the final cocktail. 

Next, make the shrub. 

  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 1 part citrus juice
  • 1 part vinegar

Then put the following in the shaker. 

  • 1.5 oz whiskey
  • 0.5 oz shrub
  • 0.5 oz simple syrup
  • 0.25 oz lemon juice 
  • egg white (1 for every 2 drinks) 

Shake and serve over rocks. Grated nutmeg and orange wheel garnish.
