Raise your glass to a taste sensation for cocktails and soft drinks - shrubs - a vintage drink mixer that will knock your socks off. "Mixologists are reaching back through the centuries to reclaim vinegar's more palatable past...embracing it as 'the other acid,'" said The New York Times. The history of shrubs, as revealed here, is as fascinating as the drinks are refreshing. These sharp and tangy infusions are simple to make and use. Make Red Currant Shrub for a Vermouth Cassis or Apple Cinnamon Shrub to mix with carbonated water or develop your own with Michael Dietsch's directions.
