Fermented Raspberry Shrub

Chris Granger

This berry-infused syrup made with vinegar adds a balancing zing to all kinds of drinks, most famously the Roffignac, a sweet-tart cocktail named for New Orleans' last French mayor. Allowing it to ferment (as opposed to cooking it on the stovetop and using it immediately) makes it even tangier.
