Rum Shrub

For the rum, choose something dark and, if you want to replicate the Colonial experience, something funky.

For a refreshing non-alcoholic treat, simply leave out the rum.

For great alternatives to the club soda or seltzer, try a spicy ginger beer or a crisp tonic water. Or add shrub to a glass of white or sparkling wine.
