In an ice filled cocktail shaker, add liquor, shrub, juice, orange peel and bitters and shake until well chilled. Strain and pour into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a twist of orange.
**you can add a splash of lemon juice to the drink if you prefer a brighter cocktail
*for any cold-process shrub: mix equal parts fruit/peel/herb with sugar and apple cider/red wine vinegar; let stand in a mason jar at room temp for 2 days, strain and re-jar; refrigerate for two weeks and keep for 6 months +
The majority of the ingredients in this drink are on the sweeter ends of their respective profiles, but the wonderful vinegar acidity of the shrub rounds the flavor out well.
