Ah the shrub also known as a drinking vinegar. Don't let the name scare you away - this sweet, sour, fruit infused syrup is refreshing when mixed with soda water and killer when used in cocktails.
It takes a little time, but it's well worth it.


Grapefruit 1
Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Apple cider vinegar 1 Cup (16 tbs)



Peel grapefruit and scrape away most of the white pith. 

Put grapefruit into a 1.5L wide mouth Mason jar and muddle. 

Add sugar, vinegar and shake. 

Infuse for 1 week, shaking daily. 

Strain the mixture, and squeeze as much liquid from the solids as possible.


Mix with some vodka and soda water for a great cocktail, or just soda water for some patio sippin'.
