Signature Cocktail #13: Rhubarb-Vanilla Fizz
By Lauren Kathryn on May 10, 2013 at 5:49 am in
Ever wonder what else you can make with those stalks of spring rhubarb besides pie and jam? Our wedding wellness expert, Carlene Thomas of Healthfully Ever After, proves that they make a great cocktail ingredient with this light and tangy rhubarb-based drink.
I will never tire of fresh produce and the natural color schemes that fruits and veggies create. Whether you’re browsing a farmers’ market or strolling the grocery aisles, something will reach out and give you a shock of inspiration. It’s the same with picking a wedding color palette according to your season. Looking at the pink- and green-tinged rhubarb stalks, I was inspired to pour something floral and bright, something sweet but not saccharine. With a cottage-garden feel, this seasonally special rhubarb-vanilla fizz is a must-try before the heat of summer creeps in.
Ingredients (serves 1)
♦ 2 tablespoons of rhubarb syrup (Morris Kitchen*)
♦ 1.5 ounces of vodka
♦ Vanilla seltzer water to fill (DRY Vanilla Bean Soda*)
♦ Rhubarb stalk to garnish
*For a light and balanced drink, I’ve recommended certain products, as I know the outcome that they will produce. Feel free to use your preferred brands to fit your palate.
