A good customer here in New Hampshire brought in this ultra modern looking glass several weeks ago and asked if I could reproduce it in pewter. He then told me that the model he was holding was an 18th century reproduction called a Shrub Glass. I was immediately hooked.

What’s a Shrub Glass you ask? It’s used for drinking the popular 18th century rum drink known as a Shrub. There are many Shrub recipes, but the rum version seems to have been the most favored. Look here for a recipe.

In any event, I think this design is great and the cup clearly can be used for a whole host of things including ice cream! Small size holds 5 fluid oz. and stands 4.25″ tall and the Large size holds 11 oz. and stands 5.5″ tall. Sure to be a popular item!
