House Red

Begging to be paired with a cheese and charcuterie plate, this cocktail is a satisfying alternative to red wine. Different from de-alcoholized or regular wines, our House Red cocktail nevertheless hits the same range of notes: fruit, herb, spice, tannin, acid, and most importantly, balance. This is a cocktail you can sip with dinner.

It requires making shrub—a syrup of fruit, vinegar, sugar, and aromatics—and buying a bottle of verjus (tart, unfermented wine grape juice), but we promise it's worth it. Alternatively, tart cherry juice could be used, and shrub can be purchased instead of made. One of our favorite producers is Element Shrub, and their Blueberry Rosemary shrub would be perfect here.
