It's a well known family fact that I am enamored with rhubarb. The very first dessert I ever made on my own was a Rhubarb Custard Pie, which my Nanny proclaimed the best pie she ever ate!
I love to make new and unique recipes to make with the sour stalk, and this rhubarb martini one of my newest ones!
🍸 Making Martinis with Rhubarb
You might think at first that a rhubarb martini sounds odd, but if you love rhubarb as much as I do, you will be happy you tried this and enjoy them all summer long!
The rhubarb mixture is stewed with a sweetener, then strained to remove the solids. What you have left is a pretty pink, slightly sweet and tangy rhubarb syrup.
Once the syrup is made, it can be stored in the fridge and taken out to make individual martinis as desired!
When ready to serve the rhubarb martini, fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the syrup, vodka, and lime juice and shake vigorously!
