Berry Tasty Mocktails

Berry beverage fans unite! Who doesn't love drinks made with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries? These are a favorite to blend with soda and sparkling water. Below are some exciting new berry mocktail recipes to try now; including a shrub recipe to be used in all sorts of different drinks.


Huckleberry Shrub Mocktail



6 ounces huckleberries (about 1 cup)
1½ cups sugar
1 cup white wine vinegar
8–10 cups club soda


  1. Place huckleberries in a 1-qt. jar. Bring sugar and vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar.

  2. Pour hot vinegar mixture over berries and mix with a fork, crushing berries gently to release more flavor. Seal jar and store in a cool dark place 4 days.
  3. Strain shrub through a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth into a clean jar; cover and chill. Check shrub every week or so until vinegar flavor mellows to your liking.
  4. For each drink, combine 3 Tbsp. shrub with 1 cup club soda in a glass filled with ice. Taste and add more shrub if you like.

Do Ahead: Shrub can be made 6 months ahead. Keep chilled.
