This 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.
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.
