Shrubs (vinegar-based syrups) add sweetness and tang to cocktails and mocktails. Splash some in ice-cold seltzer to make a mocktail or make a boozy beverage with vodka (see associated recipes).
Combine strawberries, sugar, vinegar and lemon zest in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 20 minutes. Strain into an airtight heatproof container. Refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours or up to 1 week.

Easy to make the shrub ahead. The recipe with the cocktail is excellent.
