I am not one to drink at home alone. I feel like drinking is for socializing and I leave it at that. But the sun is shining and my days off are Sundays and Mondays; days no one else wants to go out, and sometimes a woman deserves a drink. I recently bought rhubarb at the Ballard Farmer’s Market and decided to whip up some syrup for spring beverages. The great part was that after I made the syrup, I was able to save the vegetable (which I always believed to be a fruit until now) for a sundae topping. So yeah, basically this has been the best Sunday.
3 cups chopped rhubarb
3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups water
Combine the above in a pot and simmer for 20 min.
Pour over sieve and save vegetable in jar for sundae topping
Shot of Vodka
1/2 shot of rhubarb syrup
Handful of Ice Cubes
Place above ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake to combine.
Pour into glass and add ginger beer to your liking.
