Rhubarb Gin Martini

An (almost) unbeatable party starter. Goes well with Chaka Khan.

Makes 4 cocktails (serves…)

250g Rhubarb
50ml Apple juice
100g Caster Sugar
150ml Water
100ml Gin
Crushed ice
Soda water


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.
