This shrub is a delicious alcohol-free thirst quencher! If you have a sweet tooth, you can always add syrup, but that’s definitely not a must thanks to the high quantity of natural fruit sugars. A shrub is a cocktail based on vinegar, soda water and/ or fresh ingredients such as mint, raspberry, lemon or basil. These recipes have been specially developed for Oil & Vinegar by Tess Posthumus – better known as world’s best female bartender! She selected her favorite vinegars for making shrubs.
