A beverage that's cold, fruity, and healthy? We're definitely interested. We met up with Micah Olson, bar owner and mixologist at Bar Crudo, to get a preview of his newest summer concoction: Strawberry Balsamic Soda with Basil and Cracked Black Pepper.
Olson showed us how he makes this refreshing vinegar-based summer soda and discussed his inspiration behind the drink. "I usually make a new shrub soda every season," he said, as he explained how vinegar, not usually found in creative drinks, can actually be quite good for you. He specifically enjoys this strawberry shrub soda because it is "not just juice in a glass, it has something that's unique."
