Rhubarb can treat you right in two ways: first, it provides a tremendous flavor for cocktails, especially when cooked into a syrup. Secondly, it is a fantastic garnish since it can be formed into a multitude of shapes and effects.
Amy, the amazing mixologist known on IG as @moodymixologist , has an event this week called #garnishweek. It was an honor to be asked to participate, and rhubarb was an easy choice since it’s fairly accessible and doesn’t require professional level skills to make it look great.
For this garnish, it’s simply a long strip from the rhubarb stalk swirled around the glass - so simple, but so fun!
The cocktail has some hints of a Negroni with gin and Campari, but it also has a lighter summertime feel from the lime and splash of bubbles. It’s an easy sip and one that is sure to pass the eye test.
Happy Monday and cheers to simple but fun garnishes for garnish week and beyond!!
1 1/2 ounces Gin @haymansgin
1/2 ounce Campari @campariofficial
1/2 ounce Lime juice
1/2 ounce rhubarb syrup
5 drops Wisecraft orange vanilla bitters
Add all ingredients, except the bubbles, into a shaker filled with ice and shake until well chilled. Strain into a glass, top with a splash of bubbles, and garnish with a swirled rhubarb strip. Enjoy!
The Inquisitor Wine Company Cabernet Franc 2016, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Earthy nose with black currants, bell pepper, green vegetables, wet leaves, wood, forest floor, smoke, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite, bitter herbs and peppercorn.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, cloves, earth, vegetables, graphite, spices, peppercorn, tobacco and dark coffee.
Medium plus in finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very interesting wine and a nice surprise. This Cabernet Franc is earthy with lots of vegetable and bell pepper notes.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (1 hour) and shows the tannins. Good by itself and better with food.
Interesting and tasty.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
Aged for 24 months in Oak barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
89 points. $21. .

This Red Schooner by Caymus Vineyards is made from Mendoza Malbec grapes. The wine is barreled and aged at Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley. The color of the wine is dense, dark red, on the palate is gives concentrated flavors of ripe plums, cherries, and French oak. It is an enjoyable wine in the tradition of the Caymus style. #redschooner#wagnerwinery#caymus#latinxwine
