What Is A Shrub Beverage?

I'm always interested by how cocktails obtain their names-- as well as after browsing my fair share of bar menus, there is one term in particular I have actually constantly considered: the shrub. What makes a drink a shrub? And also just how did this word, which I relate to a well-groomed yard, happened associated with mixed drinks?

" Shrub" is in fact the name of 2 various alcohol-related refreshments, as well as vinegar plays a pretty huge function in this beverage's history. One kind is a fruit liqueur that was specifically prominent in 17th century England, made with rum or brandy, sugar, fruit as well as citrus juice-- though vinegar was used rather than citrus to protect berries in the off-season. This liqueur would then be combined with flat or sparkling water to create an alcoholic drink. The other kind of shrub is a sweetened vinegar-based syrup that can be utilized to make a drink-- this is additionally called "drinking vinegar," and also is generally infused with fruit juice, natural herbs and also seasonings.
