I was going through an old recipe box the other day when I came across this,
I love finding old recipes in my Grandma’s handwriting.
We lost her 16 years ago and I miss her every day, seeing her writing makes me feel closer to her.
I love rhubarb and I love drinks so I knew right this was going to be my next Friday Summer Cocktail.
What you need,
4 cups rhubarb, cut up
4 cups water
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 oz. vodka
Start by combining the rhubarb and water in a large pot. Cook over medium high heat until it starts to boil. Turn down the heat to medium and cook for 10-15 minutes until the rhubarb is softened and most of the color has come out.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve.
Stir in the sugar and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
To assemble a cocktail add 3-4 ice cubes to a tall glass, pour in the vodka. Add enough of the rhubarb drink to fill the glass to ¾ full, top with ginger ale. Stir to combine.
This drink is so easy and so perfect for a hot summer day!
It has a light but distinct rhubarb flavour with just the right amount of sweetness.
It is really lovely.
Have a great weekend everyone!
