Ebenezer's Envy | Taste and Tipple

Ebenezer's Envy

Verjus is a highly acidic juice made from pressing unripe grapes. Paired with the apricot jam and gingerbread syrup in this drink, it tastes a lot like a shrub (drinking vinegar). Trust me on this one, it’s delicious. Both Seedlip and Verjus are available at Chef’s Paradise in Ottawa.
