Blackberry-Lavender Shrub

Makes 1 quart
Time 24 hr 15 min
A shrub, or drinking vinegar, is a sugar and vinegar mixture infused with a combination of fruit and herbs. This summery blackberry and lavender version is great when splashed in sparkling water, or use it for cocktails.
Ingredients
  • 2 pints blackberries roughly chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried lavender
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups champagne vinegar
Method

In a medium bowl, combine blackberries, lavender and sugar. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Arrange a fine mesh sieve over a bowl. Strain fruit mixture into the bowl and press to extract all juices. Add vinegar and whisk vigorously. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 month.   

To use, fill a glass with ice and sparkling water, then stir in 1 tablespoon of the shrub; add more to taste.
