Fennel Rhubarb Gin Spritz
This drink is incredibly refreshing. Light with a little bit of a kick from gin. You do have to make a rhubarb purée first, so plan accordingly.
- 1 medium (about 115 grams) stalk of rhubarb, thinly sliced
- ½ cup (99 g) sugar
- ½ cup (120 ml) water
- 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) gin (I like Hendrick’s)
- ¼ teaspoon fennel seeds
- 4 ounces (¼ cup/60 ml) of sparkling water
- Lime wedge
- Optional: fennel fronds or a slice of rhubarb stalk for serving
For the Rhubarb Purée: Combine rhubarb, sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat and cook until mixture is pink and slightly syrupy, about 12 to15 minutes. Let cool, then transfer to a blender and purée until smooth (you should have about ½ cup (120 ml) rhubarb purée), you can keep it in your fridge in an airtight container for a few weeks.
For Assembly: In the bottom of a high-ball glass, muddle the fennel seeds with the gin. Add 2 tablespoons of rhubarb purée. Top off with the sparkling water. Add ice, garnish, and serve.
- Some rhubarb is very green when ripe, some is pink and some is deep red. That can all have great flavor, but pink and red varieties will give you a better look.
