In this less sweet, tangy rendition of an Old Fashioned, we let Mother Shrub's Black Cherry Shrub take the lead. Based out of Richmond, Mother Shrub crafts artisan drinking vinegar designed for cocktails with or without alcohol. Refreshingly tart and delicately sweet, they offer a cooling reprieve from midday heat.
