Shrub is back: having disappeared at the beginning of the 20th century, it now seems to make a triumphant return to American bars. Shrub is an alcoholic beverage, usually made with some kind of fruit-based syrup mixed with vinegar, which is prepared from the juice of the fruit or another ingredient of the planned cocktail (e.g. cider). Ready-made vinegars are also available for shrubs, e.g. there is banana vinegar from Mexico. It is needless to say that vinegar can be mixed with non-alcoholic beverages too: PokPok, a restaurant in Portland (Oregon) sells drinking vinegar – diluting the vinegars with soda – in 4 flavours. Queens Kickshaw, the restaurant of Hotel Astoria in New York makes a shrub drink from pickled beet juice.
