|Shrub syrups for cocktails|
While the prevalence of these drinks might seem new to New Yorkers, they've apparently been around for awhile. A long while. According to the NY Times these libations were popular back in the 1700's, and cocktail books from the time have plenty of vinegar based recipes. When looking down the cocktail list, we always search for our favorites (rye, Green Chartreuse). Sounds like it's time to add vinegar to this list.
