Test Kitchen Tips

Since blood oranges are only available for a limited time during the year, Cara Cara or navel oranges will work in this recipe as well.

If you want to tame the tangy quality of this shrub, just add more club soda.


Peel strips of 1 orange (do not include white pith); place in a glass bowl.

Suprême oranges; place in bowl with peels. Add sugar and squeeze orange membranes over bowl. Crush orange mixture with a potato masher and let stand 30 minutes.

Stir in vinegar, cover, and refrigerate 48 hours. Press shrub through a fine-mesh sieve; discard solids.

Combine shrub with ginger beer and club soda; serve over ice.
