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.
If you have any of your classic cocktails that rely on grapefruit juice consider swapping out the juice for the Grapefruit Shrub. It creates a nice twist with a little extra “tang” to the cocktail that is distinctive and has your friends asking “what makes this taste so good?” I originally ordered one bottle. Went through it quickly and then ordered two more. Enjoy!
We ordered 5 flavors -- still have to try one. We love them ALL. Texas Grapefruit Shrub, the Ruby Red, and the Fiery Ginger are all AMAZING! A little mixer, a little lemon juice and your spirit with some flavored sparkling water and you will be in heaven.
Purchased as part of the 12-pack and this was one of the stars of the show.
I tried the grapefruit shrub on a whim while purchasing my other staples, and it did not disappoint. Drink of choice is the La Joya recipe on the bottle, but will be experimenting with other recipes soon. Give it a try!
This is delicious. We've been making the la joya recipe off the bottle and it's really nice.
