Makes 1 refreshing beverage.
4oz. iced tea
1oz. island olive oil Sicilian lemon white balsamic
Lemon slice and mint for garnish
Mix iced tea with white balsamic in pretty glass with ice cubes. Add lemon slice and mint for garnish. Alcohol Optional Version: Delicious spiked with bourbon.
A shrub is also known as a drinking vinegar which has actually been around for a very long time. It was originally a way of preserving fruit. It’s usually made with apple cider vinegar, fruit and sweetened with sugar and becomes a sweet and sour syrup, but our traditionally made balsamic fruit flavored vinegars are an easy probiotic option without the addition of sugar. A generous splash can be diluted with seltzer water, and can be spiked with a spirit so it’s a perfect alcohol-optional beverage.
Try mixing this up with Kanoe’s suggestion of Pineapple white balsamic for a “plantation iced tea” and garnish with fresh pineapple, or our peach white balsamic for a peach tea flavor. You can also use flavored tea to add to the flavor like a mango and black tea, peach and black tea, or lemon verbena for a refreshing twist.

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe. Be creative and have fun!
Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)
Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)
Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)
Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)
If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta.
You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings
