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.
Shrubs are great, they are such a fun way to diversify and add to your collection of bitters and syrups and this one is particularly fun.
Texas Grapefruit Shrub is one of the best things we've tasted lately. The zing of the vinegar really makes the drinks different and SO satisfying. We love the Salty Mutt and the Grapefruit Negroni. We'll be ordering more Shrub very soon! Happy Holidays!
We love Liber &. Company cocktail mixes. We have been making the LA JOYA cocktail with the Texas Shrub. The only difference is we and a small amount of orange Liquior, like Di Amore. Super nice cocktail to enjoy on the patio with friends.
I ordered this along with a variety of syrups to give as gifts to my cookbook club. I’ll get reviews from everyone st our January gathering
The good and bad news, I loved it in a Grapefruit Negroni, was good in a La Joya, did not like in a El Floridita look forward to trying in a Paloma.
