A shrub is an old fashioned traditional fruit concentrate, like a syrup, preserved with vinegar and used to make or flavor beverages. A few ounces with bubbly water and a makes a fabulous drink all on its own, and there's no reason you couldn't use it as a cocktail mixer if that's your thing! Shrubs can also add zing to jam or salad dressing, and make a wonderful glaze for grilled meats. We use raw, unfiltered honey and raw apple cider vinegar for an extra-vital cultured beverage! We made this shrub to celebrate of Lunar New Year. We liked it so much we are offering it again this week. Mandarins are potent symbols of good luck for this special celebration, and this shrub is infused with spices typical of East Asia.
