An elderberry shrub is a refreshing colonial-period drink, also known as drinking vinegar, made by combining elderberries, apple cider vinegar, and raw honey. The brew is infused together for several weeks to create a tart and tangy, probiotic-rich, health-forward beverage that is added to water and has been consumed for centuries. In recent years, it’s become a trend-right alternative to soda and alcoholic beverages.
The term “shrub” is derived from the Arabic word “sharāb,” which means “to drink.” Shrubs were popular during the colonial era as a way to preserve fruit and extend its shelf life. They were also used as a tonic to improve digestion and boost the immune system.
