Shrubs (the drink, not the plants) are a bit of a trend right now, but they've actually been around for a long time. Vinegar shrubs can be traced back to the 17thth century when in England vinegar was used to preserve fruits and berries for the winter. The fruit-infused vinegar was then filtered and drunk for medicinal purposes. It was believed that vinegar shrubs could revitalize the heart and cure diseases.

Those 17th those of the century weren't really wrong. The benefits of drinking shrubs include detoxifying the liver, stabilizing blood sugar, fighting free radicals, and facilitating digestion, among others.

Shrubs fell out of favor in the mid-20th century, when sugary drinks like Coca-Cola became popular. But today we're a little more conscientious about what we put in our bodies.

Nowadays, mocktails are all the rage, and these Blackberry Shrub and Strawberry Mocktails are not only good for you, but delicious.

We have used Marukan genuine fermented rice vinegar in this recipe, I find it lighter than other vinegars, resulting in a tastier drink.
