Shrub per se refers to a style of fruit syrup born in colonial America. Usually made with vinegar, the syrup could sit on the shelf for long, unrefrigerated stretches. The syrup could be mixed withy cold water for a refreshing summer soft drink, or-more often than not in the well-lubricated days of the Founding Fathers-rum or some other spirit rounded out the glass. Whisk water and sugar together at a boil. Reduce heat for a few minutes and add raspberries, stirring occasionally, for 10 min. Add vinegar and bring to a boil for 2 min. Strain, cool, and bottle. Keep refrigerated ! Build with ice in a stemmed goblet, and stir. Garnish with fresh raspberries.
