Healthycooking's picture
Spiced cranberry shrub is a spiced fruit drink. Prepared with seltzer water, apple juice and cranberry juice cocktail, the spiced cranberry shrub is flavored with lemon peel and served chilled. Great for a summer day!
  Cranberry juice cocktail 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Unsweetened apple juice/Cider 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Cider vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Cinnamon stick 1 , cracked
  Whole cloves 2
  Lemon peel strip 2 (2 Inches Long And 1/2 Inch Wide)
  Sodium free seltzer water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Orange slices 4 (Thin)

In a small heavy saucepan (preferably nonmetallic), place the cranberry juice cocktail, apple juice, vinegar, cinnamon stick, cloves, and lemon peel, and bring to a boil over moderately high heat.
Adjust the heat so that the mixture barely bubbles, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Cool and strain into a 2 quart pitcher.
Fill 4 12 ounce glasses with ice cubes, divide the cranberry mixture among them, and top with the seltzer water.
Stir briskly and garnish each drink with an orange slice, if you like.
