*Shrub?  Dating back to colonial days, Shrubs are a way of preserving fruit in a vinegar-y solution that makes a sweet-savory refreshing drink. Combine fruits will all sorts of herbs, spices, even veggies for thousands of varied drinks.  Use as a mixer for cocktails or combine with sodas, lemonades, juices for non-alcoholic drinks.
