Shrub, a colonial-age drink (from the Arabic sharabâ??" to drink"), is a concentrated syrup made from fruit, vinegar and sugar, usually mixed with tonic or soda water. In the nineteenth-century, the drink was often spiked with brandy or rum. Though ubiquitous in colonial times, the use of shrubs as a flavoring subsided with the increasing industrial production of foods. The entire shrub market was practically halted until the Tait family in Pennsylvania revived the drink. In addition to being available for commercial sale by the Tait's, shrub is also served at establishments that stress historical connections to colonial times, like Williamsburg, Virginia, and City Tavern in Philadelphi
