How to Make a Pineapple Mint Shrub Mocktail
Hi Sweet Friends,
Learn how to make a Pineapple Mint Shrub Mocktail using this simple flavor combination to create a delightfully sweet and tangy nonalcoholic beverage that’s perfect to serve at your next party.
A Shrub was a common beverage served in the 1700s here in the United States and has recently had a resurgence in popularity thanks to the “Drinking Vinegars” now being sold at grocery stores and specialty stores. And that’s just what a Shrub is! It’s a combination of fresh fruit, vinegar, and some type of sweetener. And if you use raw vinegar, you’ll turn this Shrub into a probiotic-rich beverage!
Plus, you’ll be pleased to know that a Shrub is very easy to make and can be customized with any combination of flavors that suits your fancy! So be sure to give making one a try so you’ll have this refreshing beverage to quench your thirst during these hot summer days. And as you sip this Shrub, maybe you can relax, put your feet up, close your eyes, and imagine that you are enjoying this drink with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin!

Pineapple Mint Shrub Mocktail (Video)
- 2 cups Pineapple, cubed
- 1 cup Fresh mint leaves
- 1 cup Honey preferably raw
- 2 cups Apple cider vinegar preferably raw
- Put the pineapple cubes into a clean half-gallon jar and mash the pineapple with a wooden spoon or pounder to release the juices.
- Add the mint leaves to the jar and mix with the pineapple.
- Pour the honey into the jar and mix with the pineapple and mint.
- Pour the vinegar into the jar, stir everything together, and then place a cap on the jar and shake vigorously to mix well.
- At this point, you can refrigerate the mixture in the jar to allow the flavors to blend and deepen or you can prepare to strain it.
- If you are ready to strain the mixture, place a mesh strainer over a bowl or large measuring cup. Press on the mixture in the strainer until all the liquid has strained through into the bowl or measuring cup.
- Transfer the liquid into a clean jar and refrigerate until you are ready to use it.
- If you are ready to use the liquid, take a large drinking glass and fill it with ice. Next, take 1/4 cup of the liquid and pour it into the glass, then fill the glass with plain water or sparkling water up to the rim of the glass. The Shrub is now ready to drink.
