Blackberry-Mint Shrub Mimosa Recipe

Blackberry-Mint Shrub Mimosa Recipe

We are going to go ahead and say that shrubs should always be an option as a mimosa modifier. So what actually is a shrub? A shrub is created similarly to a ​simple syrup​ and contains sugar, vinegar, and fruit. The result is an amazing concentrate that can be used in a wide variety of cocktails. For this specific recipe, we took fresh blackberries, mint, and lime to create a shrub that you’ll be using from now on for at home cocktails. Just like the Kiwi Mint Orange, this mimosa will pair well with classic, go-to brunch options.


  • 5 pints fresh blackberries
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 5 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 5 cups sugar
  • Juice & zest from 1 lime 
  • Champagne
