A MARIO BATALI RECIPE

Rhubarb G&T

The farmers market is a constant source of inspiration, today I found rhubarb and knew I could celebrate it at both the beginning and the end of the meal.


Ingredients

Makes 1 drink

For the rhubarb syrup:

1 pound rhubarb

1 ½ cups sugar

1 ½ cups water

 

For 1 cocktail:
1 ½ ounces gin

1 ½ ounces rhubarb syrup

3 ounces tonic water

Ice

Lime wedge

Directions

For the rhubarb syrup:

Cut rhubarb into 1-inch chunks, making sure to discard any leaves. Combine rhubarb, sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then cook until rhubarb is soft and beginning to break down, about 3 minutes.

 

Strain through a mesh strainer and reserve solids to make jam or a pie. Chill syrup in the refrigerator until ready for use.

 

For the cocktail:

Fill a tall glass with ice.  Add gin and rhubarb syrup, then fill the glass with tonic.  Stir, garnish with lime wedge and enjoy immediately!
