Rhubarb. Not Just for Pies.

Rhubarb Cocktail BittersThis year at Tales of the Cocktail 2008, in New Orleans, Joe Fee of Fee Brothers introduced yet another new cocktail bitters. Call me crazy, but I had never once imagined Rhubarb Cocktail Bitters would exist. Joe Fee, however, thought it would be the perfect addition to his ever-growing selection of bitters, and now I couldn’t agree more.

What, you may ask, should Rhubarb Bitters be used for? I’m sure you could come up with a plethora of recipes, but here’s one to get you started.

Strawberry Reverie

3 strawberries, muddled
2 dashes Rhubarb Bitters
1½ oz vodka
½ oz orange juice
¼ oz maple syrup
¼ oz Parfait Amour Liqueur

Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake well and strain over ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a strawberry.

I don’t know about you, but this concoction screams “Summer Dessert Cocktail” to me. Something most definitely worth trying out this weekend, for sure.
