With the dog days of summer approaching, we harvested the last tender stalks of our rhubarb plant. We decided that we would use some of the stalks to make up a rhubarb simple syrup that would be a nice sweet and tart option for our drinks.  With this fresh syrup in our hands, we decided to try out a recipe that would be quick and simple and pay a bit of an homage to an often forgotten classic, the gin sour.

Combining a tart sweetness with a citrus burst, the rhubarb sour is a great drink for the hot summer evenings. Using a crisp clean gin like Brokers London Dry Gin gives the drink a hit of herbs and citrus that makes the drink very refreshing. The inclusion of an egg white brings a creamy silkiness to the drink, making it feel quite elegant.
