Rhubarb Sour

September, 2019

Make no mistake. This cocktail’s got kick! Flirty, refreshing and perfect for ushering in summer.

2 oz gin

1/2 oz lemon juice

1/2 oz lime juice

1 1/2 oz rhubarb syrup

2 dashes rhubarb bitters

Lime slices and strawberries (to garnish)

A splash of tonic water or sparkling wine (optional)

To make the rhubarb syrup, place 2 cups of chopped rhubarb in a small pot with 1/2 a cup of water and 1/2 a cup white sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let simmer 20 minutes. Strain well, and store the syrup in the refrigerator.

To a cocktail shaker, add the gin, lemon juice, lime juice, rhubarb syrup and bitters. Fill the shaker with ice, and shake until the shaker becomes frosty. Strain into a glass with ice, and garnish with lime and strawberries. For a sour with a little less kick, add a splash of tonic water or sparkling wine
