An (almost) unbeatable party starter. Goes well with Chaka Khan.
Makes 4 cocktails (serves…)
50ml Apple juice
100g Caster Sugar
Heat the oven to 190C. Chop the rhubarb into 2cm chunks and put into a baking dish with the apple juice and a tablespoon of sugar. Roast for 8 mins until tender. Leave to cool until and blitz in blender or food processor.
Simmer the sugar and water on the hob, stirring until the sugar dissolves to make a syrup. Add the rhubarb and mix. Leave to simmer for 20 mins to infuse then take off the heat and cool.
Pour the rhubarb syrup and gin into a cocktail mixer along with some crushed ice. Shake vigorously.
Pour into martini glasses and top with a little soda water and garnish.
