Shrub, Rattle Skull and Fish House Punch! (Oh My!)
The nerds of Untapped History have been busy designing and sampling historically themed drinks. So...in recognition of the end of summer and the start of the school year (yay?), here are some historically themed cocktail recipes we highly recommend! Enjoy!
Shrub 2 oz. of dark rum Club soda ½ oz. of Shrub syrup NOTE: To make the shrub syrup: In a medium bowl, mash the berries with the sugar and let sit for one and a half hours. Strain through a fine sieve into a clean bowl, pressing on the fruit to extract as much liquid as possible. Stir in vinegar and pour into a bottle or jar and refrigerate. The syrup can be kept in the fridge for up to two months. Rattle Skull 2 oz. of dark rum 2 oz. of brandy Juice of ½ a lime 1 pint of dark beer

2 oz. of golden/dark rum
