Summer Cocktail/Mocktail

Drinking vinegar, say what?
Shrubs are thought to have originated in the Middle East with great popularity in the U.S. during colonial times. In this pre-refrigeration era shrubs were a way to preserve fresh fruits after the growing season. Recently shrubs have made a comeback and can be found on many restaurant and bar menus. Vom Fass fruit vinegars are essentially shrubs based on production methods. Blend with club soda  or tap water
