Method

  1. To make the rhubarb syrup, put the rhubarb in a pan with the sugar, orange zest and juice and a small splash of water. Bring to the boil, then simmer gently, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes until the rhubarb is very soft.
  2. Strain the syrup through a fine sieve into a jug, pressing the rhubarb to extract all the juice. Allow to cool.
  3. Pour a little rhubarb syrup into each glass, divide the gin among them and top with chilled sparkling wine.

delicious. tips

  1. Forced rhubarb – also known as champagne rhubarb – has a pale colour and a sweet flavour. You’ll have more rhubarb syrup than you need for 6-8 cocktails, but you can keep it in sterilised jars in the fridge for up to a month.

  1. I love this recipe because it’s a wonderful grown up way of using rhubarb from my allotment, after exhausting all the pies, cakes & crumbles on delicious!!
