It appears to be that time of year again wherein I hunt the summer cocktail. This here? Above? Rhubarb Orange Flower. Tangy, refreshing with a hint of floral goodness (and for me, a scent of my childhood, citrus blooms) and the bonus is that it's easy.
Step one: make the rhubarb syrup. I followed this recipe. Keep in mind you have to squish and squeeze the liquid out of the rhubarb. Be prepared. And for gods sakes, wash your hands.
Step two: add a teaspoon or two of the orange flower water to the syrup. I was recently gifted with some and didn't know what the heck I'd do with it. Within one week, I was putting it in a cocktail. That's just the way I roll.
Step three: Fill glass with ice.
Step four: add one shot of vodka, one shot of rhubarb orange flower syrup, and top with mineral water.
Step five and six: mix and enjoy.
