If you have ever read a Lauraine Snelling book before - Swizzle, or Shrub as it is sometimes called, was a refreshing drink popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s but not attached specifically to any nationality. Ingeborg used strawberries or raspberries in her drinks and canned or bottled the extra mixture of berry juice and vinegar to use later. It could be made by the glass or pitcher with the sugar and water added at the same time. Since they didn’t always have it, ice was considered a luxury.
