Delicious. Refreshing. Low-cal. And it involves a SHRUB.
Shrubs are non-alcoholic mixers that take your cocktails to a whole new level. Our favorites at K2.0 are the shrubs from Liber & Co., based in Austin, Texas. Shrubs combine juice, vinegar and a tiny amount of cane sugar. One ounce of Liber & Co. Texas Grapefruit Shrub contains: 32 Calories, Total Fat 0g, Cholest. 0mg , Sodium 0mg, Total Carb. 8g, Fiber 0g, Total Sugars 8g, Protein 0g. You can enjoy a shrub with a little grapefruit vodka, as we did, or just pour an ounce over ice and add club soda. Either way, it’s super refreshing!
For our cocktail, we mixed the following in a cocktail shaker:
- 1 oz. Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka
- 1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 oz. Liber & Co. Grapefruit Shrub
Pour into a tall glass (with or without ice) and add 3 oz. club soda. We splashed about a tablespoon of freshly squeezed orange juice over the top, which by the looks of it, was mostly pulp! Yum!
