Weekend Cocktail: Caipirinha with strawberry and rhubarb shrub

Looking for a recipe for the weekend?  This caipirinha cocktail is easy to prepare and highlights the shrub.

The shrub is a tart acid and sweet juice whose origins come from the Middle East.

But its relationship with autumn is that precisely the fruits contained in the shrub are preserved during this time in a marinade with sugar, vinegar and water. The tradition goes on. At Christmas, the fruits of the preparation are eaten and the rest of the macerated liquid is called shrub.

Besides, an infallible mixture is strawberry and rhubarb and therefore we propose this cocktail based on shrub of strawberry and rhubarb.
