WHY SHRUBS ARE SUDDENLY EVERYWHERE
Shrubs, otherwise known as "drinking vinegars", may seem to have taken over in the past few years - but they're actually not a new concept. In fact, this unique syrup has been around since colonial America!
Shrubs, derived from the Arabic word "sharab" meaning “to drink," offer a unique combination of sweet, earthy, and tangy flavours.
This resulted in a refreshingly tart beverage which saw shrubs incorporated into cocktails and then during the prohibition era, to make elegant, non-alcoholic drinks for consumption in bars.
Though the origins of shrubs may be historic, they are making quite the comeback among modern-day drinkers. With a blend of sweet, savoury and tart notes - shrubs are perfect for enhancing cocktails and drinks for all types of tipplers - and non-tipplers, who can enjoy them with soda, seltzer or sparkling water.
Plus, if you're feeling creative, they can also act as an acidic component in any marinade or vinaigrette!
So if you're looking for a way to add some extra flavour to your drinks - look no further than drinking shrubs!
