A "superior efficacy against putrefaction" as well as a delicious byproduct of my pickled strawberries, shrub is a mix of fruit and vinegar along with sugar. Add it to your favorite spirit (or seltzer) for a zippy, tart, and refreshing drink.
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Pour into glass, with or without ice, garnish with a lime wheel. Rim the glass with salt, if you like.
