A shrub is a beverage made from fruit, some sort of acid, and a sugar. They were popular in colonial America as a means of preserving fruit without refrigeration. The vinegar breaks down the fruit and the sugar sweetens everything up a bit. The result is a tangy, sweet, complex mixture that is very refreshing when mixed with soda water.
Seek out satsuma oranges instead of the typical clementines this holiday season. They are much more flavorful! 🍊
They also make a great host gift. Instead of taking a bottle of wine to the next holiday party, change it up and take some of the best oranges your host has ever had!
