Blueberry Shrub Punch
This blueberry shrub punch is one of our favorite drinks. Shrubs were popular during America’s colonial era as a cocktail and became another way to preserve fruit. Whether it's a hot summer afternoon, or you wish it was, this refreshing drink is worth the work.
Peel lemon with a vegetable peeler. (Do not include white pith.)
Crush 1 lb. blueberries, lemon peel, and sugar in a glass bowl; let sit 30 minutes. Stir in vinegar, cover, and refrigerate at least 48 hours. Press shrub through a fine-mesh sieve; discard solids.
Combine shrub, vodka, and club soda with ice and blueberries; serve immediately.
