Spring and rhubarb, spring and rhubarb, go together like a horse and carriage...🎵

Ok, fine, it doesn't work. But rhubarb IS in season here in the Northern Hemisphere, so obviously I've been on the hunt for a way to incorporate this deliciously tart and beautifully vibrant fruit into a cocktail! This tasty recipe and lovely photo by @liqculture brings together one of my favorite cocktails (Gin Gimlet) with some of my favorite flavors (lime, ginger, rhubarb), and is a lovely way to celebrate Spring!

Rhubarb Ginger Spring Gimlet

Usher in Spring with this delicious twist on a classic Gin Gimlet.

Yields:

1 Drink

Ingredients:

2 oz Gin

1 ½ oz Rhubarb Ginger Syrup*

1 oz Lime Juice

Garnish: Rhubarb Ribbon

Instructions:

FOR THE COCKTAIL:

Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until cold. Double strain into your favorite coupe glass and garnish with a rhubarb ribbon.

FOR THE SYRUP:

Combine 2 stalks of chopped rhubarb, the peel of one whole lime, 3 inches of peeled and chopped ginger, one cup of sugar, and one cup of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the temperature and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the rhubarb is soft and breaking down. Take the syrup off the heat and allow it come to room temperature. Strain out the solid ingredients and store in the fridge.

*RECIPE NOTE:

If you prefer a drink that errs on the tart side as I do, I recommend cutting the amount of the rhubarb ginger syrup in half. As with any cocktail you make, play around with the proportions to find the balance that works for you!
