1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups DOLE® Chef-Ready Frozen Blackberry Puree
1 slice frozen DOLE Sliced Apples
1 tablespoon DOLE Chef-Ready Cuts Diced Apples


  1. Add vinegar and sugar to a small sauce pot and simmer until all sugar has dissolved.
  2. Cool liquid and add to a sealable, unreactive bottle (glass preferably).
  3. Add blackberry purée and seal the bottle. Shake well to blend the two mixtures.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 days before usage.
  5. Shrub will remain usable and flavor will only improve for up to 2 months in an airtight and refrigerated container.
  6. Serve shrub over ice and top with either something sparkling, like a lemon lime soda, or simply fill the rest of the glass with water. Utilize 1:2 shrub to filler ratio.
  7. Garnish with either a sliced apple or a tablespoon of diced apples for pops of tart apple and an optional slice of lime.
