The newest Netgreen member, Strip District-based Caffe d’Amore is hosting the first Pittsburgh Shrubdown. But what is shrub? Shrub is a Colonial-era method for fruit preservation. Local artisanal shrub makers are combining fruit, vinegar, and sugar to create a variety of natural concentrates that can be used to flavor beverages. The product is a tart-n-sweet real fruit drink that will be mixed with local organic spirits from Wigle Whiskey, also in the Strip. The taste can be compared with Kombucha. Join us to experience the flavors of the nearly lost preservation method.
