Peach Smash Shrub
1 large peach, pitted and sliced very thinly
½ c. water
½ c. sugar
Pinch of salt
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 oz. Teaoli White Balsamic Vinegar (Cara Cara Orange Vanilla, Gravenstein Apple, Jalapeno, Peach, or Sicilian Lemon)
3-4 fresh mint leaves
Splash of seltzer water or ginger beer
1. Place peach slices in a jar and add sugar, water, salt, and apple cider vinegar. Shake to mix, then chill in the refrigerator for at least three hours and up to a week.
2. To assemble the drink, use 3-4 of the peach slices from syrup and place in the bottom of a glass with mint leaves.
3. Muddle to combine, then add balsamic vinegar and stir. Finish with seltzer or ginger beer.
4. For a quick shortcut, skip macerating the peaches and use extra balsamic vinegar!
