"The Office" cocktail is everything you wish your office was. Thanks to The Aviary for the great cocktail!
A shrub is a fruit syrup mixed with vinegar. Historically, shrubs were made as a way to preserve fruit to drink, mixed with soda or water. Today, with the addition of different vinegars, sugars, spices, and herbs, shrubs have become a way to preserve and enhance fruit’s flavor. Use the shrub traditionally with soda water over ice or mix creatively into cocktails. Each sip will be reminiscent of an era when ingenuity surpassed the simple desire to preserve a summer’s bounty.
