Inna Shrub: Shrub has a long tradition as a refreshing beverage going all the way back to the Colonial Era, but it actually originated a thousand years ago in the Middle East!
Shrubs are an excellent way to preserve the harvest of our gorgeous fruit when it is at it's most perfectly ripe. In making our shrubs we use the whole fruit (not just the juice), and cold-cure the shrubs to maximize depth and complexity of flavor. The vinegar and sugar both help to preserve and capture the fleeting fruit flavors while balancing each other out to make a sweet-tart syrup that a perfect base for a drink. Shrub is essentially a fruit-vinegar-sugar syrup. Mixed with sparkling water it's the most refreshing drink we've ever had. Of course, it's also great in cocktails.
To make our shrub into a fruit soda, mix 1 part shrub to 5-6 parts sparkling water (or to taste).
