Shrubs, also known as drinking vinegar or vinegar cordials, have a long history in drinking spanning many cultures and origins. While the history of drinking shrubs is long and convoluted with appearances in 15th and 16th century English medicinal cordials, shrubs fell out of favor in modern times and were only relatively recently re-visited as a great source of acidity, sweetness, and fruit-forward flavors for cocktails. The Imperialist makes use of a Green Tea and Orange Shrub that pairs nicely with the PostModern Spirits Navy Strength Empirical Dry Gin and PostModern Spirits Chamomile Liqueur.
