Allow me to set a stage for you: it’s a Saturday night, you have some casual friends coming over (aka, people you are still trying to impress), and you just finished crafting the perfect playlist loaded with an impressive array of indie hits and ‘90s R&B gems (you’re a people-pleaser, after all).
So, what are you drinking?
You want something drinkable yet interesting. Something sweet and sour and fresh. Something that will make your guests pause after their first sip and ask, “What is in this?!”
“Rhubarb shrub,” you’ll say, because you are the kind of person who keeps rhubarb shrub on hand.
Here’s what else you’re going to need:
Gin and Juice
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
1 oz Rhubarb Shrub
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
½ oz Lemon Juice
½ oz Sugar
Soda Water (optional)
Lemon Peel, for garnish
In your tin, add all ingredients. For sugar, you can choose to use a variation of honey syrup versus simple syrup. Add 5-6 ice cubes to your tin and shake firmly. Add fresh ice to your cocktail glass.
Using your Hawthorne strainer, strain onto fresh ice. Optional—add a light amount of soda water to the top to cut the juice and add a little fizz.
