Shrubs

An Old-Fashioned Drink for Modern Times
Michael Dietsch
Foreword by Paul Clarke
Book cover for Shrubs by Michael Dietsch
A beautiful revised edition, with foreword by Paul Clarke, and 10 new recipes.

"A shrub is exactly what the people who invented the phrase 'slake your thirst' had in mind.  A shrub is full of character and variety. The ingredients—fruit, sugar, and vinegar—are as simple as can be. But the variations are seemingly unlimited. It has another superpower: A strong shrub game can help you make the most of bruised or aging summer fruit."

The New York Times , in an article featuring Shrubs

Michael Dietsch took the mixology community by storm when he brought back a popular drink from colonial times, the shrub. Not the green, leafy kind that grow in the ground, but a vintage drink mixer that can be spiked with alcohol or prepared as a soda. Drinkers, bartenders, and the media embraced the book. This new edition features a foreword by Paul Clarke, the Executive Editor of Imbibe magazine and author of The Cocktail Chronicles. Here is the definitive guide to making and using shrubs.
