Product Details

What is a Shrub? The American version of the shrub has its origins in 17th century England where vinegar was used as an alternative to citrus juices in the preservation of berries and other fruits for the off-season. By the 19th century, typical American recipes for shrubs used vinegar poured over fruit—traditionally berries—which was left to infuse anywhere for several days; afterwards, the fruit would be strained out and the remaining liquid would be mixed with a sweetener such as sugar. The sweet-and-sour syrup could be mixed with either water or soda water and served as a soft drink, or as a mixer in alcoholic cocktails.

The Horball's Difference We care about quality – quality ingredients, quality manufacturing, and quality flavors. When a customer buys a Horball’s product, they know that the finest, freshest ingredients were curated into a magnificently tasting product. We don't skimp on the packaging either... you won't find plastic bottles and chintzy screw caps - sturdy glass bottles and high quality branding draw attention to a bottle of Horball's on the shelf. We believe in a green Earth and sustainable manufacturing; our production facility is powered by a solar array.

And if for any reason you don’t like it – tell us why and we will help you get a different flavor to try out!

What drinks can you make with a shrub? This is one of the questions we get the most: you can make almost any kind of drink with a shrub. Sweet, sour, tangy, refreshing, bubbly. With or without alcohol. Just combine 1oz of your favorite shrub with soda, a liquor, or follow one of our recipes. If you come up with an awesome recipe, share it with us!

  • 1 oz Horball’s Cucumber Mint Drinking Vinegar
    2 oz Bourbon
    1/4 oz simple syrup
    Mint leaves for garnish

We just had to add the cucumber version of our mint julep – it is hot outside and this drink is the most refreshing cocktail in the world. For real.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, go ahead and muddle some mint and simple syrup. Then combine the Bourbon and Horball’s, pack that glass with crushed ice in a julep tin or a rocks glass, and stir WELL until that glass is frosty. Enjoy, rinse, repeat as needed!

(As always, drink responsibly!)
