I love a shrub. I’m not talking about the bushes next to your driveway, although I’m fond of some of those. I mean the mixer you make by soaking fruit in vinegar and adding sugar until it becomes a sweet, tart syrup. In my office, we made one from grapefruit, but you can substitute any fruit you find at your local farmstand. When your shrub is ready to drink, add a splash to a vodka and soda (or a gin and soda) for a refreshing surprise!
Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
