Good Things to Drink with Mr Lyan and Friends
Whenever rhubarb’s red stems start to appear at the market, I can’t help
but think about making this drink. There are a few good rhubarb cordials
available to buy now, but I’d suggest making your own. Once you taste
this cocktail you’ll happily go through the whole batch.
This is one of those fruity yet vibrant drinks that everyone seems to love.
The egg white creates a soft cloud of flavour, not too sweet or too sharp.
You won’t taste it, but its texture is paramount as it holds the taste on your
tongue. Use freshly cracked organic eggs from your buddies at the market.
You can make rhubarb ice cream with the leftover yolk, some cream/milk
and the syrup.

  • How to mix a gin cocktail. Rhubarb Leaf - Step 1
    Step 1

    To make a rhubarb syrup, slice 1 stick
    of rhubarb and place in a pot with the
    sugar and water. Bring to a rolling boil.
    Remove from the heat, cool, then strain.
    Add just under 1 shot (20ml/0.8oz) of
    the syrup to a shaker along with the
    gin, lemon, raspberries and egg white.
    Shake first without ice, then with ice.
    Double strain into the glass.
    Cut a strip of rhubarb, dip in sugar, and
    lay across the surface.

    You can also blitz the rhubarb syrup
    before straining it. This yields a more
    concentrated syrup – almost like
    a purée – which gives the drink a
    thicker texture and even more of that
    trademark tartness.
