To make shrub:

1 cup chopped plums

1 cup apple cider vinegar

1 cup granulated sugar


To make drinks:

1 liter ginger ale

2 tablespoons kosher salt

2 tablespoons granulated sugar



Place chopped plums and apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 72 hours. A mason jar also works well. Remove plum vinegar from refrigerator and empty into a 2 quart pot. Add sugar and simmer just until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Let cool. When syrup is cool, strain through a sieve into a bowl, pushing on the solids to extract extra juice. Chill in refrigerator till cool. Pour a tablespoon of ginger ale on a saucer and dip rims of four serving glasses into it, rotating to wet the rims. Combine kosher salt and granulated sugar in a small plate. Dip glasses into sugar/salt mixture, rotating to coat rim. Fill glasses with ice and pour 1/4 cup of plum shrub syrup in each glass. Top up with ginger ale and serve immediately.
