My neighbour has a rhubarb patch and he encourages me to help myself to as much rhubarb as I want. I picked a lot this year! I made a few rhubarb crisps and still had enough for this rhubarb G&T. First you make rhubarb syrup. Chop 3 cups of rhubarb and combine with 1 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat and simmer gently until the rhubarb is very soft. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl. Transfer the syrup to a glass jar or bottle and admire the colour.
Then you make the cocktail using the pretty pink syrup! Combine 1 oz rhubarb syrup, 1 oz fresh lime juice, 2 oz gin and 2 oz tonic. Pour over ice & garnish with lime or rhubarb.
Then you drink it – summer in a glass!
