Peach Sweet Sipping Vinegar
You know me: taking a pull off the brine from anything pickled is my kind of hit. But there's something to be said for intentionally mixing a nice vinegar into some seltzer with a dash or two of bitters that seems to elevate me from the pickle crack house to the vinegar garden party. Luckily, another recipe is making the rounds that is perfect for my late summer brine fix: the fruit shrub.
3/4 c mashed fruit (peeled, pitted, etc.)
3/4 c white sugar
1/2 c white vinegar (to taste)
Because around these parts, vinegar has gotten quite civilized.
