I’m very excited to announce the launch of my second digital book, ‘SHRUBS & BOTANICAL SODAS, Drinking Vinegars from The Garden’.


Following the success of GROW YOUR OWN COCKTAIL GARDEN, Drinks Writer Corinne Mossati has launched ‘SHRUBS & BOTANICAL SODAS – Drinking Vinegars from the Garden’, the second title in the GROW IT EAT IT DRINK IT books.

SHRUBS & BOTANICAL SODAS is a digital passport to a world of flavour, creativity and refreshing non-alcoholic drinks from the garden.

The 60+ digital book is aimed at home gardeners, drink enthusiasts and cooks of all skill levels. It teaches how to transform home-grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, Australian native botanicals, flowers, citrus and spice into delicious drinking vinegars.

Featuring 20 savoury and sweet shrub recipes followed by botanical sodas and no-and-low alcohol drink recipe templates, the book includes full page colour photographs taken throughout the seasons on location in The Gourmantic Garden.

“The book is not just a collection of shrub recipes,” says Corinne Mossati. “It’s a celebration of sustainable sipping, championing an eco-friendly and mindful drinking culture using garden-fresh ingredients while reducing food miles and waste. It’s ideal for non-drinkers and designated drivers.”

The introductory chapters have all the shrub basics, from the shrub-making methods and various types of sugar and vinegar to the proper storage of shrubs. The second part consists of 20 shrub recipes with detailed step-by-step instructions, sustainability and zero waste tips along with drink and food suggestions. The third part contains drink recipe templates incorporating botanical sodas, non-alcoholic beverages, low-alcohol drinks and cocktails.

SHRUBS & BOTANICAL SODAS is the second title in the GROW IT EAT IT DRINK IT books after GROW YOUR OWN COCKTAIL GARDEN and is available as a digital download in pdf format HERE. Thank you for supporting an independent author.
