Today’s beverage is the Watermelon Shrub Collins:

This drink is a good way to get acquainted with shrubs, or drinking vinegars.

Shrubs originated in the 17th century by using vinegar as a way to preserve fruit. They are now commonplace in bars and used as an alternative to citrus to provide acidity in a cocktail.

Enjoy!
