Rhubarb Cocktails

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
