Liber & Co. - Texas Grapefruit Shrub
Being Texan boys, these guys grew up eating Rio Star grapefruits. Brilliantly red and very sweet, The Rio Star is a variety unique to South Texas. They wanted to highlight their home state’s iconic citrus by creating a Texas Grapefruit Shrub.
Shrubs are antiquated methods of fruit preservation that offer lively combinations of intense fruit essence and tart acidity. In drinks they can 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.
