Try this Modern Cocktail Rhubarb Gimlet
What better way to welcome the warmer months than with a seasonal cocktail. I’ve always been a huge fan of a classic gimlet, but rhubarb makes a delicious addition as well as gives it a pretty pink hue. Typically, a classic gimlet includes gin and sweetened lime juice, often the Rose’s Lime Juice brand. The cocktail was popular with members of the British Royal Navy and the lime juice may have played a role in keeping scurvy at bay.
For this beautiful cocktail with a pink tint, I used the leftover syrup from poached rhubarb and add different flavours like rosemary or star anise. I’ve gone for equal parts Mirabeau Dry Gin, rhubarb syrup and lime juice. Here is Lindsay Radcliffe’s original post.
- 100 ml Mirabeau Dry Gin
- 100 ml Rhubarb Syrup
- 100 ml Fresh Lime Juice
- handful of Ice
- Lime Zest to serve
- Combine the Mirabeau Dry Gin, rhubarb syrup, lime juice and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds.
- Strain into two chilled glasses and garnish with a strip of lime zest.
