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 is The Hudson Standard's first, and uses pears from orphaned orchards and low-spray family farms in the Hudson Valley. The pear flavor is blended with warm ginger and a touch of honey, and is perfect for gin, rum, and bourbon.
