RHUBARB GIN

Conventionally, gin is made with the bitterness that is to be found in its integral ingredient, juniper berries. With a rhubarb gin, however, a further infusion of rhubarb is made to offer a greater level of both sweetness and tartness. It is drunk perfectly well on its own, chilled over a few cubes of ice. However, rhubarb gin is usually consumed with a mixer to turn it into a summer-infused long drink. By far the most popular option for this is tonic water. 

Because rhubarb has a noticeably acidic flavour, it is ideal for mixing with gin in just the same way that you might squeeze a little lemon or lime juice into your classic gin and tonic. However, because gin offers a greater level of tartness than either of those two citrus fruits, rhubarb gin is often made with a rhubarb syrup that adds sweetness to level out the flavour into something altogether more palatable. Of course, some rhubarb gin drinkers choose not to end it there and will add further flavourings, such as peppercorns and even pink grapefruit. In fact, the latter makes a great alternative to the other citric flavourings because the rhubarb in rhubarb gin makes for a very attractive pinkish hue when the spirit is mixed with tonic water. It may be a trendy drink that is very much of the moment, but rhubarb gin looks set to stick around for a very long time indeed.
