Bringing back an old thread but been drinking this shrub and love it:
http://www.mcclarybros.com/products/...inking-vinegar

I am in the process of trying to minic it. I tried:
http://www.heyeep.com/2013/09/carrot...ub-recipe.html

And it turned out not good at all... no taste really. Now I am experimenting with mcclary's recipe per the back of the bottle. So far pretty darn good at:
1.25 cider vinegar
2/3 beet juice
1/3 carrot juice
1/2 cup sugar

still not enough "vinegar" taste like mcclary's but close. Think I might try to up the sugar and vinegar slightly.

Check the acidity of the vinegar you're using. The McClary's that you referenced is 50 grain or 5%. I think that most apple cider vinegar that you buy at the grocery is typically 40 grain or 4%. To substitute, remember N1V1=N2V2, so if it is 4% then .04*x=0.5*1.25, x would end up at 1.5625 meaning 1.5625 of 40 grain would be equivalent in acidity to 1.25 of 50 grain. Hopefully that gets you to where you need to be.

Ya mine was 5%... not sure if it's that brand or ? Might be that they are using real veggies too instead of relying on juices like I am. I think it's close but not 100% yet.

I've made a handful of shrubs, blackberry, pineapple, and raspberry. The blackberry was best, hands down. I used the cold method, to keep the fresh fruit flavor intact. Basically, equal amounts of sugar to fruit, steep in the fridge for a few days, press out the juices from the seeds, Add equal amounts of vinegar to sweetened juice. I usually used about a third part of that to two parts fizzy water to make a beverage. I think what made it taste good was using Braggs Vinegar, rather than the brands you usually find in the store.
