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.
I really enjoy adding Liber’s Texas Grapefruit Shrub to cocktails, and dessert sauces! This shrub supplies genuine taste from the juice and essential oils, and the herbal vinegar gives a bright (not overpowering) tartness, followed by a mild herbal finish!
Before using the shrub in any cocktails I decided to get a sense of its own character by mixing half an ounce in a glass of soda water. What a revelation! The kids didn't like it but I thought it was spectacular, subtle, and complicated.
excellent, seamless, and delivered quickly
I stumbled across Liber & Co. while searching for the “best Orgeat”. I seen the wide variety and could not resist trying the other products. One standout product is the Texas Grapefruit Shrub. I used 2 recipes from the website Salty Mutt and the La Joya. Both of these drinks were unique and flavorful. I would definitely order again!
This is an interesting product. I have had shrubs before and loved them so I wanted to try this. I am still experimenting with it. I tried it in a daiquiri and loved the tang. I also added it to a margarita and was equally pleased.
