Scale

Ingredients

For Strawberry-Rhubarb Honey Simple Syrup
1 cup honey
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
3 rhubarb stalks, sliced

For Strawberry-Rhubarb Gin Fizz
2 ounces strawberry gin (see note)
1 ounce strawberry-rhubarb honey simple syrup
1/2 ounce heavy cream
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 egg white
Ice
Club soda
Sliced strawberry, for garnish, optional


Instructions

For Strawberry-Rhubarb Honey Simple Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, stir together honey and water. Add strawberries and rhubarb and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve the honey and periodically mash the fruit. A potato masher works especially well for this, though you could also use a wooden spoon or wide spatula.
  2. Once it comes to a boil and the honey dissolves, turn off the heat. Give the fruit another mash to release its flavors. Allow to steep for about 30 minutes. Strain, pushing down on the fruit to extract as much syrup as possible, and chill. This can be done ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple weeks.

For Strawberry-Rhubarb Gin Fizz

  1. In a cocktail shaker, add the gin, strawberry-rhubarb honey simple syrup, heavy cream, lemon juice and egg white. Put the top on and shake for 30 seconds. Without the ice, the shaker may leak a bit.
  2. Add a handful of ice, put the top on again and shake vigorously for at least a minute. For an extra frothy topping, you can do this for several minutes if you’d like.
  3. Strain into a Collins glass. Top with club soda and garnish with a strawberry slice if you’d like. Enjoy!
