Rha Rha Number Two - How to Make a Shrub

An abundance of fruit and produce presents itself in the summer and thus it is the perfect season for making a shrub. Made simply by combining fruit based syrup (think of simple syrup made with fruit juice instead of water) and vinegar, shrubs are a great way of imparting sweet fruit flavors and delicious acidity to a cocktail. In this case, Jamie utilizes a rhubarb shrub that combines beautifully with a citrus forward gin like Martin Miller's.
