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.
The Texas grapefruit shrub was fantastic, like all of the products I have gotten from liber and co
Excellent shrub! This is a flavor profile that isn’t for everyone, but I really like it!
We are regular customers of Liber & Co and recently tried the grapefruit shrub. It is an excellent addition to our well stocked bar! Loving its tang and brightness . We’ve used it in the El Floridita and the Spring Dream (both recipes from the Liber site) Yum!!
When I first got this, I didn’t think that I would like it, but when you find a cocktail that it works in, there is nothing else that beats it.
The sweetness and the zing in this syrup is great! I first made the Rio Swizzle and that is an outstanding beverage. I have also made the following with this syrup and some Blood Orange Cordial.
Juice from 1 Orange
Juice from 1 Lime
2oz Doctor Bird Rum
2oz JM Rhum White Rum
1oz Texas Grapefruit Shrub
1oz Blood Orange Cordial
1/2 St Elizabeth Allspice Dram
3 dashes Peychauds
Shake with ice and strain into glasses (makes 2 drinks)
