MINNEAPOLIS -- Phil Calvit recently created Calvit's Drinking Shrubs after giving up drinking alcohol and looking for an alternative.

The term "shrub" is something to describe a syrup, vinegar, fruit or vegetable based mixing concoction used for cocktails or mock tails.

The concept isn't new but the flavors Calvit is experiencing with are entirely his own.

Calvit says he discovered the drink when a bartender served him up a mock tail. He later went home and began experimenting with flavors.
