Seasonal Cocktails – Rhubarb-tini

Holiday 2012 Archive Dive — Here is another Rhubarb Cocktail idea…this one seems very festive!

I am late in posting because I am still coming off the exhaustion and fun of this weekend.   I joined one of my dearest oldest friends in NYC for 2 nights, where we shopped until we dropped.   Wedding dresses and little girls dresses were the main object of our desire, but we found a few other treasures too.

This time of year when you go away for even a couple of days it is to be expected that when you come home to your garden you might find something completely new.    To my delight I have two quite robust clumps of rhubarb popping up and I immediately started lusting after my favorite rhubarb crisp.

But I had a thought that perhaps I ought to broaden my rhubarb horizon….what else can I make with rhubarb (that I like)? — I have tried making sauce (not a favorite) , muffins (blech), jelly (ok, but just ok), cake (I actually quite like this, but can only eat it once a season before tiring of it), tart — also good but a bit much sometimes… I went searching for other options when I found Things We Make‘s recipe for rhubarb-tini.   As soon as these stalks are ready harvest, I will be pouring myself a crisp delicious rhubarb-tini.

    I just had rhubarb crumble and custard at my mothers house this sunday, surely that is the best dessert ever! Just don’t be mean with the sugar.
