Full Description

Our Watermelon, Mint, and Himalayan Salt Shrub reminds us of summertime, even in the middle of winter. Watermelon is one of the most hydrating fruits on the planet. Accompanied by subtly sweet and cooling mint, both flavors are heightened and brightened by Himalayan Salt.

Urban Pharm Shrubs are versatile. Start by adding a shrub splash to sparkling or still water. Make your morning apple cider vinegar dose something to savor rather than throw back. Add a sprig of rosemary to add some texture. Don’t look now, but you may have a festive mocktail or cocktail on your hands. Shrub up your next marinade or dressing.
Play around to your liking.

Each little bottle has about 15 servings and each big bottle has about 25 servings, depending on how vinegar-forward you want to be.

We have adorable gift boxes for each size. Note that boxes are sent unassembled (so not recommended if you're sending directly to a gift recipient). You can add to your order at check out!

What’s in there and why it is “good for you”

Raw apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is a tried & true health aid. Thanks to acetic acid and loads of friendly bacteria, apple cider vinegar is great for your gut. It also supports digestion, lowers blood sugar, and improves insulin sensitivity.

Raw Honey: Honey is sweet and delicious as well as rich in antioxidants. Although the body processes honey as it does cane sugar (raising blood sugar levels), the composition of honey actually improves blood sugar regulation.

Watermelon: Thirst-quenching, beautiful, juicy, and packed with nutrients, watermelon is fun and bright as well as anti-inflammatory, cancer-fighting, and heart-healthy.

Mint: Sweet, joyful, and cooling, mint adds zest and brightness to anything it touches. A good source of vitamin A (important for vision and immune health) and antioxidants (which protect
cells against free radicals that can cause damage and lead to disease).

Himalayan Salt: Himalayan salt is the superwoman sister to your regular salt. Jam-packed with over 84 minerals and trace elements Himalayan salt is filled with nutrients. It is also simply gorgeous. Especially in rock form, if you can find it.

Recipes

Sunshine Gazpacho
This is so easy and so freaking delicious.
🍉 Take all of those yellow and orange tomatoes that are taking over your counter right now—especially the super sweet cherry ones—and put them in a blender.
🍉 Throw in whatever onion product you need to use up—we used shallot and garlic.
vIf you’ve got an orange melon around, like cantaloupe, or maybe even yellow watermelon, add some of that. If not, no worries.
🍉 Salt, of course. We like course or flaked sea salt. Or pink Himalayan.
🍉 And the finishing touch that takes it to a whole new level...a few tablespoons of Urban Pharm Watermelon + Mint shrub!

Watermelon Mint Mojito
🍉 Fill a glass with ice
🍉 Add one jigger (2 ounces) of rum
🍉 Add half of a jigger (1 ounce) of Watermelon, Mint, and Himalayan Salt Shrub
🍉 Top with club soda
🍉 Stir and garnish with fresh mint
Stick with the ratio of rum to shrub to club soda, or mess around with more or less of each to fine-tune to your taste. Add a basil garnish to create some herbal complexity. A pinch of salt or a squeeze of lime to highlight and complexify flavors.


Product FAQs

What is the shelf life?

The shelf life of Urban Pharm Shrub is 12 months, though in fact it is good for longer. After 12 months, the flavors might change and the colors will not be as vibrant.

How long will it last once open?

Urban Pharm shrubs are very stable thanks to that delicious apple cider vinegar. Before opening, they can live in your pantry for at least a year. We recommend refrigerating after opening and enjoying within a year for maximum flavor and color.

Does shrub need to be refrigerated?

Urban Pharm shrubs are shelf stable, which means they do not have to be refrigerated. We do recommend that they go in the fridge after opening to better preserve taste and color.

Does shrub contain alcohol?

No, Urban Pharm Shrub does not contain alcohol.

Does shrub contain sugar?

Yes, Urban Pharm Shrub does contain sugar in the form of raw organic honey. Honey is more nutritious and flavorful than cane sugar, as well as less processed. Our shrubs also contain fructose from the fruit.

Does shrub contain caffeine?

No, the ingredients in Urban Pharm shrubs are naturally caffeine-free.

What is the difference between shrub and kombucha?

Urban Pharm Shrub is a drinking vinegar. It is made by combining vinegar and honey with fruits and botanicals. The combination ferments for several days to a week. Shrubs are both tart and sweet. Kombucha is fermented tea. It is made by combining a black or green tea with cane sugar and a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). The combination ferments for seven to 10 days. Kombucha is a fizzy caffeinated (and slightly alcoholic) beverage that can be flavored fruits and herbs for flavor.

What are the health benefits of apple cider vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar is a tried-&-true health aid. For thousands of years, it has been used in both the kitchen and the medicine cabinet. Benefits include:

● Digestion improvement (the acidity of the vinegar restores stomach acidity and helps with enzyme release, both of which promote healthy digestion)
● Blood sugar balance and weight loss promotion (courtesy of the acetic acid, created by the fermented sugar in the apples)
● Energy booster (due to its amino acid, potassium, and enzyme content, it acts as a natural electrolyte solution and curbs the buildup of lactic acid)
● Clears congestion (the potassium and acetic acid can thin mucus to help clear your sinuses)
