Monique Carr Makes Shrubs

Spellbound Syrups is popularizing the fruity, probiotic drink

A shrub is any drink made from a vinegar-based syrup, but the word can refer to the syrup itself, too. Most of the shrubs you’ll find here in Albuquerque are made by one person: Monique Carr, the woman behind Spellbound Syrups.

Get Out There

It’s summer in Burque and myriad patios await your presence. Snap the kids out of their bought air-and-video game trance for an outing that culminates in the joyful consumption of healthful and delicious paletas—no, really!—or invite some colleagues and comrades out to smash the swanky local rooftop bar scene with you. If you’re looking for a more pastoral vibe, get your farm-to-table on in Albuquerque’s resplendent North Valley. Here are a handful of our favorite patios in The Duke City. Don’t neglect to slather on some sunscreen and install a rideshare app (such as Uber, Lyft or zTrip) on your smartphone ... in case you over-hydrate.
