A quick and easy cocktail this week. A rhubarb twist on the classic champagne cocktail. Incorporating one of my ever expanding collection of lovely bitters. A perfect summer evening apéritif, it also brightened up a gloomy May evening.
rhubarb champagne cocktail (serves one)
1 sugar cube
3 drops rhubarb bitters
sparkling rosé wine
Place the sugar cube in your glass. Place 3 drops of rhubarb bitters on the sugar cube so that it soaks in. Pour in some rhubarb vodka (if using a flute cover the sugar cube, if in a coupe then about half way up the cube). Top with sparkling wine (I used rosé to go with the pink colour of my rhubarb vodka).
