You don't need complicated recipes to make complex, flavorful cocktails. Just toss in some booze to this pre-mixed shrub: an old-school inspired syrup that's regaining ground in the cocktail world. Hudson Standard's are made from fruit, vinegar, and sweeteners, which add up to one delicious and easy way to mix up drinks. And if you're not in the mood for alcohol, mix it with seltzer for an equally good home-made soda.
This mix combines black currants, black raspberries, and organic sugar for a blend that suggests chocolate and jam, and pairs well with prosecco, rum, vodka, or ale.
