This refreshing shrub makes for a delicious thirst-quenching drink on a hot summer's day.


  • 3 green tea bags
  • 3 quarts hot water
  • 1 quart of ice cubes
  • fresh pineapples and strawberries for garnish

Strawberry-Pineapple Shrub


Place strawberry-pineapple shrub ingredients (water, sugar, strawberries, pineapple, and balsamic) in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a low simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Steep tea bags in hot water and cool to room temperature. Once cooled to room temperature, add ice. Strain 
shrub into the tea (alternatively, you do not have to strain, adding the cooked pineapple and strawberries to your tea) and stir to combine.

Fill serving glasses with ice and pour in the iced tea. Garnish glasses with fresh strawberries and pineapple 
before serving.

Makes 1 gallon (3.5 L) of iced tea
