225g rhubarb, chopped
1 long strip of lemon or orange peel
Rhubarb Lime Cocktail
Juice of 1/2 a lime, plus thinly sliced lime for garnish
60ml ice cold tequila or gin
60ml dry white vermouth
60ml Rhubarb Syrup
Dash of bitters
Make the syrup
Place the rhubarb, sugar, water and citrus peel in a small pan.
Bring to a simmer and cook until the rhubarb becomes very soft, 12-15 minutes.
Pour the mixture through a strainer set over a bowl to let the syrup run through.
Stir gently to speed up the process, but try not to push too hard or the solids will cloud the syrup. Cool before using. Refrigerate for up to a week or two.
Mix the drink
Combine the ingredients in a shaker with ice cubes.
Shake vigorously and strain into a short glass filled with crushed ice.
Garnish with a lime wheel.
