- The Rusty Bartender
Sometimes you buy a bottle of spirit and it sits there because you have no idea what drink to use it in . For me this bottle was Edinburgh Gins Rhubarb and Ginger . Delicious and pink it pairs just great with tonic on its own . But alas I'm here to make cocktails right ? So I searched and searched for the perfect recipe . So I bring to you now Rustys a drink so good its named twice . Rhubarb Rhubarb !
It brings the prominent flavor of rhubarb along with a subtle hint of spicy ginger and pairs it with the bitter notes of Orange from the Aperol . This combines with zingy fresh lime and a little simple syrup for sweetness .
This drink would be perfect in any situation but definitely in summer as it is a very easy sipper and you might forget there is actually alcohol in this drink.
2 oz. Rhubarb and ginger gin
1 oz. Aperol
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
0.5 oz. simple syrup
3 dashes Orange Bitters
1 egg white
Add all your ingredients into a cocktail shaker without ice , and shake until the mixture is frothy .
Add ice and shake until your shaker is frosty cold .
Strain into an ice cold glass .
Drink down and enjoy .
Remember to enjoy responsibly Rustys and as always to drink better .
