Suggested Dilution Ratio For Shrubs & Sodas: 1oz Syrup into 8oz Seltzer

Shrub. Sounds like a small plant. But in this form, a shrub is a method of preserving fruit juice that dates back centuries. In our part of the world, shrubs date back to the colonial era. It was the only way to enjoy fruit juice after its prime before refrigeration was invented. The preservation method involves making a syrup of vinegar, fruit juice and sugar. These days, you mostly see shrubs on craft cocktail menus. But, we have found that they make nice refreshing sodas when mixed with seltzer or club soda. 

Switchel. Originally called "Haymakers Punch", switchel is a traditionally non-carbonated soft drink not unlike the sports drinks we know today. But, this one ACTUALLY quenches thirst. Mid-day toiling in the hay fields, someone would inevitably bring out a jug of switchel for the workers to enjoy. It can be served warm, room temperature, or ice cold (my favorite). At its core, switchel is apple cider vinegar. When mixed with molasses, maple syrup, or honey and a variety of spices, the flavor of switchel can vary greatly.
