Summer in a Bottle
Posted on Monday, August 5th, 2013
I’ve been busy capturing and enjoying our summer flavor bonanza. I’m calling this Blueberry & Tarragon Vinegar – Summer in a Bottle. I’m sure it will be a great addition to salad vinaigrettes. But I’m hoping it will also be a great addition to future garden cocktails. Drinking vinegars are hot ingredients right now. Also known as shrubs, they are a marriage of fruit, vinegar and sugar. So my big plan is I’ll add a splash of this Blueberry-Tarragon Vinegar, along with a little simple syrup to future cocktails, and have more flexibility. I won’t be limited by an already sweet vinegar. This picture was taken right after I assembled the Blueberry & Tarragon Vinegars. Now a day later, the vinegar has a rosy hue thanks to the blueberries. And those blueberries are going to be tangy garnishes for future garden cocktails. In the meantime, I’m happy just looking at these bottles of summer goodness.
