Sometimes the most accurate definitions aren’t the ones we find in dictionaries, the most thrilling flavors not spoon-fed to us by recipe books. The great masterpieces that now hang on museum walls were not “paint by numbers” projects, which is why we know them as “Mona Lisa” and “American Gothic,”…

Love this #MothersDay recipe from #ElementShrub! Thanks, Charlie!

Mother's Day is around the corner. As you may know, I started this business when my wife was pregnant with our first child, as a way to provide her with something that tasted like a cocktail but that was made with real ingredients, didn't have a ton of sugar but was still special occasion worthy. We're looking at you, The Mocktailclub and Healthy Pregnancy!

So, as a thank you to all the moms, moms-to-be and nursing moms, we're giving away a bottle of #ElementShrub this week so that you can celebrate on Mother's day with your family.

MOTHER'S DAY GIVEAWAY Win a bottle of our Cranberry Hibiscus Element Shrub by:

Great shot from last Thursday's Poetic Cocktails event at the Reading Room in the Petworth Citizen!

Pictured here is "The Surrealist," a cocktail made with Calvados, orange liqueur, lemon juice, Embitterment Orange Bitters, and egg white, garnished with a beet brine swirl.

Come on out this Thursday for an awesome evening of #cocktails and #poetry at the Reading Room in the Petworth Citizen. This is a one-night only menu inspired by National Poetry Month, and we're excited to team up with Chantal Tseng and Dylan Zehr to make it amazing.

Embitterment Co-Founder Eric Kozlik will be there spouting poems and serving your drinks, so be sure to bring your poetic license and get stoked for a night to remember.

Cocktail Menu Preview:

"The Oral Tradition"
"The Romantic"
"The Surrealist"
"The Imagist"
"The Slam"

Each drink built around and inspired by the techniques, trends, and flavors that defined these movements and produced some of the greatest works of art the world has ever known.

Here is our healthy, humpday take on a childhood favorite (that unfortunately is not that healthy at all - unless you are into high fructose corn syrup and red dye no. 40) made with healthier, real ingredients that we are calling: "Damn, Shirley!"

1oz Honeydew Jalapeno @elementshrub
1oz POM Wonderful 100% pomegranate juice
1 1/4oz Fever-Tree ginger beer
1/4oz Langdon Wood: Barrel Aged Maple Syrup barrel-aged (in Catoctin Creek Distilling Company barrels) maple syrup
Several dashes Embitterment orange bitters
Rosemary infused pomegranate juice ice cubes

Shake all ingredients back and forth between two glasses. Garnish with a jalapeno slice and rosemary sprig.
