Crespo Organic | Mango-Masala Shrub


Mango-Masala Shrub

This shrub was initially made by Nissa for a cocktail that combines the flavors of Mexico and India melded together with a unique Mexican and Indian masala style spice mix. Its sweet and sultry and has equal parts Mexico and India.

We accidently discovered it tastes beautiful when mixed with sparkling water and is our never favorite beverage on a hot day in mango world. Whether you use it for a cocktail or mixed with sparkling water, horchata, lassis and even beer- yes that’s right, it’s sure to give you Mexican and Indian vibes which should make you feel like eating more Ataulfos, which we of course love!
