About Monique Carr:
Monique Carr is an observer, forager, and maker of shrubs—fermented syrups and wine—in
Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her process involves being invited to pick fruits from properties
where the fruit will otherwise go to waste and, in doing so, celebrating the richness of our
seasonal harvest. With these fruits she makes cold-processed botanical syrups for soft drinks
and cocktails. Her intention with this process is one of storytelling, of capturing how symbiosis
between flora and human—via fermentation—parallels closeness between loved ones and
community, elicited through memory, taste, and smell.
