Product description

Review

A shrub is exactly what the people who invented the phrase "slake your thirst" had in mind. A shrub is full of character and variety. The ingredients--fruit, sugar, and vinegar--are as simple as can be. But the variations are seemingly unlimited. It has another superpower: A strong shrub game can help you make the most of bruised or aging summer fruit--The New York Times, in an article featuring Shrubs

Imagine a fizzy, soda-like drink that is drier and so much more sophisticated than soda, what with the sugar and botanical ingredients. Shrubs! Amazing! Wonderful!--Amy Stewart, author of The Drunken Botanist
