Shrubs: They’re fun to say and even more fun to drink!
But first of all, what the heck is a shrub? A shrub is a concentrated syrup made from whole fruit, vinegar, and sugar. It’s then mixed with sparkling soda water for a delightful non-alcoholic beverage. If you’re drinking a shrub, you’re enjoying a fruity drunk that is sweet, refreshing, and a teeny bit tart (thanks to the vinegar).
Although there are several different methods for making shrubs, the most common process involves creating a fruit-flavored vinegar and sweetening it with sugar. Of course, you can make your own (see below!) or you can buy some that are already made for you. Whichever you decide to do, they should definitely be added to your next sober celebration.
