Our Texas Grapefruit Shrub is a lively combination of Rio Red Texas grapefruit, cane sugar and champagne vinegar. The shrub is mildly sweet, but its hallmark is the champagne vinegar’s punchy and unique acidity. The strong and zesty grapefruit flavor is backed by a subtle allspice note.

Shrubs are antiquated methods of fruit preservation that offer lively combinations of intense fruit essence and tart acidity. In drinks they work much like citrus by providing a tart and slightly sweet component. For our shrubs, we use a cold-press technique to maintain the bright, zesty flavors that are damaged by heat-based extractions.
Literally, every drink we made with this tasted good. And good like a grown up good - not the sugar good - but good booze good. My favorite: 1.5 Oz of Wild Turkey/Honey; 1 Oz Greatfruit Shrub. Shake with ice. Pour over large ice cubes. Add 1 to 3 oz of High Noon Mango (Vodka and Soda) drink. Top with 1 dash of Lavender Bitters. So Good!
Great added to mezcal.
Crisp, bright, and tart with a nice note of sour and salt. Great with gin!
We really enjoy making craft cocktails with all the Liber products! The Grapefruit Shrub is excellent and we use it in the Paloma as well as the La Joya. We also add it to a Negroni and Manhattan some times. I have had great customer experience with Liber as well! Thanks.
Nice, but not grapefruit!
