Winter Sun

This Mango Rosemary Shrub balances the acid bite of apple vinegar against the silky smoothness of mango and the savory aroma of rosemary to create a wonderfully complex drink.
A shrub is a drink that uses vinegar as both a preservative and flavor paired with fruit. They frequently include herbs and can be made with or without alcohol. Vinegar-based drinks were recorded thousands of years ago in early Rome, and in the 1500's, however the modern shrub probably dates back to the 17th century. Originally, vinegar was used as a way to preserve fruits (think pickle). Then people learned that with the right balance, you could both preserve food, and make a very unique taste.
