Blood Orange and Ginger Shrub

You’re probably either very curious about this, or running away at the thought of vinegar in a mocktail, but I swear to you this is a game changer. Inspired by the folks of Toronto’s False Ox, this is one of my favourite shrub recipes to date that you can thoroughly enjoy this Dry January!

Inspired to create something unique for Dry January, I knew I had to make a special Shrub infusion. If you’re unfamiliar with Shrubs, than you’ll want to make sure to give my ‘What the Shrub‘ article a read before moving forward. But I’m assuming like many of you, you know what’s good, and just want to start making that delicious julep recipe I created for Dry January. So without further ado, I bring you the best vinegar infusion you’ve ever tasted!

Blood Orange and Ginger Shrub

A delicious winter-inspired shrub infusion that can be enjoyed with soda or in a fancy new cocktail. This infusion combines blood orange and fresh jamaican ginger.

Author Monica C


  • 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Blood Oranges sliced
  • 3 inches Jamaican Ginger or Peruvian
  • 1.75 cups Brown sugar


  1. Wash ginger thoroughly and roughly chop into small pieces

  2. In a sterile mason jar, add the rest of the ingredients and let this infuse in a dark, cool area over night. 

  3. After 12 hours, give the mason jar a shake so the sugar fully dissolves and let this sit for another 6 hours before straining out the contents. 

  4. Can be kept in the fridge, sealed, for 1 month.
