Rhubarb Cooler

Garden-fresh rhubarb simmered into a syrup adds a splash of springtime to this gin cooler.

 

1 1/2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1 oz. rhubarb syrup*
Club soda
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: Collins
Garnish: lime wedge

 

Combine all ingredients, except club soda, and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass, top with soda and garnish.

 

*Rhubarb syrup: In a medium saucepan, combine 6 stalks of fresh rhubarb (cut into 1-inch pieces) with 2 cups granulated sugar and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature and strain into a clean glass bottle. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
