  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 fresh mango diced (peeled and pitted)
  • ½ cup Naturacentric Orange Infused Honey
  • ¼ cup water
  • sparkling water for serving
  • ice for serving
  • fresh sage optional, for garnishing


  • In a saucepan over high heat add vinegar, mango, honey and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer (medium-low) and simmer for 15 minutes or until the mango has broken down and the mixture has reduced and thickened a little (reminiscent of syrup). Turn off heat and let cool to room temp.
  • Using a fine-mesh strainer, strain the shrub syrup from the fruit pulp (see post for step-by-step images).
  • When ready to serve, fill a glass with ice, top off with shrub syrup and sparkling water. Use approximately 1/4 cup shrub syrup per 1 cup sparkling water (but feel free to adjust to suit your tastes!). Optionally, garnish with fresh sage before serving.
  • Keep the shrub stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
