Ingredients

  • 25ml gin
  • ice
  • 75ml sparkling wine
  • thin strip of rhubarb, to garnish (optional)

For the cordial

  • 75g golden caster sugar
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 100g rhubarb, chopped
  • 1 slice of peeled ginger

Method

  • STEP 1

    First, make the cordial. Tip the sugar and 75ml water into a saucepan set over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then add the lemon zest and juice, rhubarb and ginger. Cook until the rhubarb starts to break down and collapse, about 5-10 mins. Pour into a heatproof jug through a fine mesh sieve and set aside to cool. (You will make enough cordial for two drinks.)

  • STEP 2

    Pour the gin into an ice-filled coupe glass, then stir in 50ml of the cordial. Top up with sparkling wine. Twist the strip of rhubarb around a finger to curl, if using, then drop into the drink to garnish.
