About This Recipe

A shrub is also known as a drinking vinegar which has actually been around for a very long time. It was originally a way of preserving fruit. It’s usually made with apple cider vinegar, fruit and sweetened with sugar and becomes a sweet and sour syrup, but our traditionally made balsamic fruit flavored vinegars are an easy probiotic option without the addition of sugar.  A generous splash can be diluted with seltzer water, and can be spiked with a spirit so it’s a perfect alcohol-optional beverage. You can add another layer of flavor with a flavored seltzer water.  Try using this recipe with different fruits, herbs and vinegars like:
