Have you heard about the hot, new trend called shrubs? If not, you may be wondering: what the heck is a drink called shrub? Don’t worry, we’re here to give you the low down on shrubs – and not the kind lining your backyard.
What the heck is a drink called shrub?
Shrubs weren’t invented yesterday. In fact, shrubs date back to the 17thcentury before refrigeration. Colonials would preserve fruit in barrels of vinegar, which resulted in a flavorful, fruit-infused vinegar that was perfect for drinking straight or mixing with spirits.
After refrigeration came on the scene, shrubs dropped off the popularity map. But today, with the attraction to craft cocktails and healthy ingredients, shrubs are back on the scene in bars and restaurants alike.
Why are shrubs so popular?
So, what’s the big deal about shrubs? Today’s spotlight on shrubs is largely due to their unique flavor and various health benefits. Anna’s Kitchen Shrubs come in five bold flavors: Cranberry Mint, Strawberry Lemon Thyme, Banana Turmeric, Apple Cider Ginger, and Peach Jalapeño. Our shrubs add incredible flavor to any drink, alcoholic or not.
A main ingredient in Anna’s Kitchen Shrubs is apple cider vinegar with the mother. “The mother” packs the most probiotics, which helps your immune system and digestion. Plus, Anna’s Kitchen is the only product on the market that is 100% organic!
