What is a shrub?
The word 'shrub' is derived from an Arabic word for 'drink'. Shrubs have been enjoyed in the Middle East for thousands of years, and in the New World since the colonial era. They fell out of style with the advent of refrigeration, but are starting to make a comeback within the modern craft beverage movement. Perfect for your cocktails or soda.
Vinegar provides a distinct tangy bite that balances perfectly with the sweetness of fresh fruit. Vinegar works much like citrus in your drinks - it quenches thirst, cleanses the palate and is very refreshing.
