Just can’t seem to shake off the use of shrubs in recent recipes. Probably because we made too many; let this be a warning to all. If you use our shrub recipe, you may want to halve the ingredients. The shrub in this drink provides a fruit balance, cranberry juice gives this color and tartness, and Chartreuse provides a low, but noticeable peppery kick.
1 1/2 ounces whiskey
1/2 ounce strawberry shrub
1/2 ounce 100 percent cranberry juice
1/4 ounce orange juice
1/4 ounce Yellow Chartreuse
Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir until through chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
Tasting notes: Nice balance between spirits and fruit and shrub.
