It wasn’t until this year that I finally tasted a shrub cocktail. I know they are pretty popular and they can easily be made from home. In fact there was a great post by Winnie of Healthy Green Kitchen were she makes a raspberry shrub and a blueberry cinnamon shrub. You should check it out because they both look amazing!

I was lucky enough to work with the awesome folks from Liber & Co. They make 2 different shrubs and 1 spiced tonic syrup. I decided that I wanted to give the grapefruit shrub a try because I love grapefruit based cocktails. Plus I knew I had some Scrappy’s grapefruit bitters sitting in my bar and I wanted an excuse to use them. I’m telling you people. Get on the bitters bandwagon! They are amazing!

Let me throw out a little warning about shrubs. They sorta taste like vinegar. Don’t let this turn you off. Although it’s acidic it’s extremely pleasing to the palate. I promise! I would never steer you in the wrong direction when it comes to a cocktail. Plus I have to mention I’m in love with Liber & Co. packaging. How cute is that bottle?!

Another great thing about using a shrub is that little goes along way. I do just a small splash and that is all the drink really needs. I really enjoyed bourbon with this drink and it worked perfectly with unsweet tea. If you like your drinks sweeter you could use sweet tea too.

Liber & Company were nice enough to offer one reader a sampling of their product line. So make sure to enter in the widget below. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to taste this deliciousness!
