Rhubasil – A Vodka Cocktail

Rhubarb and basil, fresh out of our garden into a cocktail!



One of our favorite things about the early season farmer’s markets are the fresh herbs and wonderfully tart fresh rhubarb. This past week we brought home a nice batch of rhubarb that we used to make a delicious strawberry and rhubarb tart.  We had a few stalks left over and not wanting to waste the fresh produce, we decided to make a rhubarb syrup that we could use in some cocktails.






Rhubarb Basil Cocktail

This rhubarb vodka cocktail uses the rhubarb simple syrup which has a tart sweetness that paired well with the aromatic spiciness of the fresh basil.  A bit of sparkling soda water gives the cocktail a nice effervescence making this drink very refreshing.
