Rhubarb gin- spring cocktail no.2!

The next cocktail is by no means my second favourite, I love it as much as the first and the last! Here is what you need to make your spring cocktail come to life;

  • 1kg pink rhubarb stalks
  • 400g caster sugar (don’t use golden – it muddies the colour)
  • 800ml gin

That is literally it! Just 3 ingredients that is going to make your mouth water even just thinking about this tasty drink!

This method is a little longer than the first cocktail, but it is still super simple and end up super tasty!

Step 1
Start off by trimming the rhubarb stalks, trim the stalks and discard the base and any leaves. A perfect alternative for this is Easy rhubarb fool. Then cut the stalks into 3cm lengths. Put in a large jar with the sugar, shake everything around in a cocktail shaker and put the lid on and leave overnight.

Step 2
Overnight, the sugar should draw the juice out of the rhubarb. After the night is up, preferably 24 hours add the gin, seal and shake everything around in the cocktail shaker again. Now I know I am going to sound bizarre, but you should leave this for about 4 weeks before drinking it.

Step 3
You can strain the liquor off through a muslin-lined sieve and transfer to a bottle, but I often just leave the rhubarb and booze in the jar and ladle it into drinks that way, after the time has passed the colour will be a lot paler, but this is okay, a good sign. And your rhubarb gin is ready to serve.
