It’s time to harvest the rhubarb, and I am looking for something new to try. I had tried a friends rhubarbtini last summer, so after some research I came up with this rhubarb simple syrup. And then use the rhubarb simple syrup as your mixology base, the combinations are endless-have fun. We tried several different recipes and I will share with you the top two, and they are equally fabulous.
The first is a version of the Farm Girl Cosmo ..from The Huffington post but with a twist.
Farm Girl Martini
- 3/4 cup vodka
- 1 cup Rhubarb Syrup
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tablespoons orange liqueur
- Thin slices of lime twists, for garnish
- Shake over ice and serve straight up in a chilled martini glass
The next cocktail I would not have imagined I would have liked it, since it is made with Gin. But I really enjoyed the sweet and spicy combination of this cocktail.
Rhubarb – Ginger Cocktail
1oz rhubarb syrup, 1oz ginger liqueur and 1 shot of Gin served over ice
this cocktail was from www.savor-the-rhubarb.com this web site has endless information on rhubarb and recipes:) I’m already waiting for my next batch of rhubarb to grow so I can get mixing up some more. enjoy
