Pineapple and Chipotle Shrub

Pineapple and Chipotle Shrub

This is something special for the birthday boy @mr_margarita_mum

I have created this amazing shrub especially to add to one of Mr Margaritas favourite cocktails this year – the Vodka Rita.

To created the VODKA RITA, I used @paumauivodka . It is handcrafted in up-country Maui, Hawaii and distilled from Pineapple and Natural Hawaiian Spring Water.

I mixed it up with:
30ml Pau Maui Vodka
15ml Cointreau
15ml Blue Curaçao
30ml Lime Juice
15ml Homemade pineapple and chipotle shrub*
30ml Aquafaba

Pour all ingredients in to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously for around a minute.

Double strain into your favourite cocktail glass and garnish with an edible flower.
